CCHR’s Charity Golf Tournament — Fight For Kids

CCHR’s Fight For Kids Golf Benefit! Hosted by Danny Masterson, Michael Peña, Jason Dohring & The Better Golf Association

Fight For Kids is a public awareness campaign launched by CCHR to help educate parents on the dangers of psychiatric drugs, the unscientific nature of psychiatric “labels” and to provide information on non-harmful, workable medical and educational treatments for assisting children with problems of attention, mood and behavior. The message of the Fight For Kids campaign is that all children have the right to grow up label and drug free.

CCHR wants to thank all who participated in this event on October 1st,  at Robinson’s Ranch in Santa Clarita, California, raising $50,000 for our national TV campaigns! Check out the video below!

Another Reason to Help Support Our Fight For Kids Campaign

4-year-olds on drugs? You betcha.

On October 17th, The American Academy of Pediatrics issued new treatment guidelines for “Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder” that say ADHD can be diagnosed in kids as early as age four, and that Ritalin and similar drugs are an appropriate treatment even for children this young.

Apparently the “Academy” has no problem with the fact that the US FDA warns that drugs like Ritalin can cause hallucinations, mania, heart attack, stroke and sudden death. Nor do they consider it a problem that a diagnosis of “ADHD” is based solely on a checklist of behaviors such as “loses pencils or toys,” “often does not seem to listen,” “is easily distracted by extraneous stimuli,” “fidgets” or “runs about or climbs excessively in situations when it is not appropriate.” And for this, children as young as four should be placed on drugs that the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration categorizes in the same class of highly addictive drugs as cocaine, morphine and opium?
