Watchdog Radio

Watchdog Radio is brought to you by the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a mental health watchdog and non-profit organization. CCHR investigates and exposes psychiatric violations of human rights and works shoulder to shoulder with like-minded groups and individuals who share a common purpose to clean up the field of mental health.

Its Commissioners include doctors, scientists, psychologists, lawyers, legislators, educators, business professionals, artists and civil and human rights representatives.

CCHR was co-founded in 1969 by the Church of Scientology and Dr. Thomas Szasz, professor emeritus of psychiatry, to eradicate mental health abuse and restore human rights to the field of mental health.
