Mental Health Watchdog has toured thousands through the museum as part of an ongoing campaign to restore rights and dignity to the field of mental health.

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, June 21, 2022 / -- Over 8,000 people have toured the “Psychiatry: An Industry of Death” museum which was opened by the Florida chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) in Clearwater during the summer of 2015.

Consisting of 14 audiovisual displays revealing the hard facts about psychiatric abuses, the exhibit is listed as the 8th “Hidden Gem” museum in the area. Visitors are educated on mental health human rights during a two-hour self-guided tour via educational panels and videos created from interviews with over 160 doctors, attorneys, educators and survivors. The museum was opened for the purpose of raising awareness on the history of psychiatry and to help create effective change to existing mental health laws. [1]

In addition to offering complimentary tours of the museum, CCHR hosts regular seminars, workshops and even continuing education courses on the mental health law, parental rights, alternative solutions and more. Delivered by attorneys and other professionals, these events are held virtually as well as in the Center, and are free and open to the general public.

The museum is open daily and events on mental health rights, involuntary examination, psychiatric drug side effects and electroshock are held weekly and monthly. For more information, please call 727-442-8820.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969.
