Deafening Silence from Cuomo on Sex Abuse Cover-Up Scandal

The most dangerous people and criminals are those that protect and shield sexual predators and rapists allowing them to continue to rape and destroy more innocent victims’ lives.

Governor Andrew Cuomo’s fraudulent Justice Center is covering-up almost all sexual assaults and rapes of women and children with disabilities

I could have stayed in that house for years and abused him every day without anybody even noticing at all. It was a predator's dream.”

— Stephen DeProspero – Former NYS employee & convicted sexual predator

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, October 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The sexual assaults and rapes of the disabled within state and privately operated group homes are in the many thousands. As the wide-scale criminal cover-ups of these sex crimes continue, Governor Andrew Cuomo has also been illegally placing convicted level 2 and level 3 sex offenders and felons to live in group homes for the developmentally disabled. According to the Office of People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) which is directly under the control of Cuomo, this has been going on for years.

The Jonathan Carey Foundation has done enough research to date to advise the general public that this is happening on a wide-scale basis and is without question a state-wide problem that directly places our most vulnerable population at grave risk of being sexual assaulted and raped.

How anyone in any position of power could be part of such a corruption scheme is beyond comprehension and unconscionable. Who is worse, the sexual predators and pedophiles like Larry Nassar, or those that literally assist and protect the sexual predators so they can continue to rape, violate and severely damage more lives? We all know the answer.

The Jonathan Carey Foundation is also uncovering another scheme of epic proportion in which most individuals that are raping little boys and girls in New York State are getting minuscule sentences or only probation.

Here are two of dozens of examples that we have located so far to give you an idea of what is going on in New York State;

A 68 year old male level 3 sex offender with high risk of re-offending getting 3 years probation, his victim was a 13 years old girl.

A 46 year old male level 3 sex offender with high risk of re-offending getting 5 years probation, his victim was a 6 year old girl.

New York State penal law 260.25 says it is a felony crime to endanger the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person, yet the Cuomo administration is ignoring this law.

“A person is guilty of endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person in the first degree when he knowingly acts in a manner likely to be injurious to the physical, mental or moral welfare of a person who is unable to care for himself or herself because of physical disability, mental disease or defect.

Endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person in the first degree is a class E felony.”

The Jonathan Carey Foundation is bringing these illegal and extremely dangerous matters to the forefront and has located close to 70 sexual predators so far from minimal research to date, from a partial list of facilities and group homes. Statistically, it appears that the numbers of convicted sex offenders already placed into group homes throughout New York State may be in the hundreds.

All New York State District Attorney’s have been asked by Michael Carey the founder of the Jonathan Carey Foundation to intervene to stop these illegal placements, ensure the removal of all sexual predators from group homes with the disabled and to prosecute the individuals involved in committing these crimes.

The State has acknowledged that they have been placing convicted level 2 and level 3 sex offenders that have a clear and known risk of re-offending to live in group homes. The State of New York is attempting to claim that they can protect disabled residents in these group homes from being sexually assaulted and raped, which is absolutely ludicrous and simply impossible.

"Group homes are for our most vulnerable people with disabilities, not for convicted sex offenders and known sexual predators." – Michael Carey – Civil Rights & Disability Rights Advocate

Here is what a convicted sexual predator and pedophile said of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s system, it is “a predators dream.”

"The lack of supervision there made it easy to do what I did," DeProspero said in a handwritten affidavit obtained by The Associated Press. "I could have stayed in that house for years and abused him every day without anybody even noticing at all. It was a predator's dream."

http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/new-york-pay-3m-family-boy-molested-group-home-article-1.2977392

Literally, almost all reported cases of sexual assaults and rapes of the disabled are covered-up internally because Governor Cuomo set up an internal hotline to bypass the 911 call systems to keep local police out of the picture. The State of New York gives facilities and group homes all the time and ability to clean up crime scenes and destroy critical evidence of sexual assaults and rapes. Federal authorities have been asked to swiftly intervene.

If you would like to help advocate and protect our most vulnerable and help fight to end this extreme corruption, please consider making a tax deductible gift to the Jonathan Carey Foundation. Thank you.

OAN Exposes Cuomo Sex Abuse Scandal & Justice Center Corruption

The most dangerous people and criminals are those that protect and shield sexual predators and rapists allowing them to continue to rape and destroy more innocent victims’ lives.

As NY Governor Andrew Cuomo hoped the sex offender and sexual abuse cover-ups remained hidden, the Jonathan Carey Foundation and OAN open Pandora’s Box

I could have stayed in that house for years and abused him every day without anybody even noticing at all. It was a predator's dream.”

— Stephen DeProspero – Former NYS employee & convicted sexual predator

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, October 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — In a nutshell the Pandora’s Box being opened up reveals the evil, the corruption, the wide-scale sexual assaults and rapes of people with disabilities, the cover-ups of almost all sex crimes and the main motive being Medicaid fraud. A number of top New York State officials are directly involved and must be held accountable and Federal authorities have been asked to swiftly intervene.

New York State’s mental health care system which appears to be the most expensive possibly in the world remains extremely dangerous and deadly. The sexual abuse within Cuomo’s agencies and group homes are astronomical in scope, 1,300 reported cases of sexual abuse within the Office of People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) alone annually. According to a well recognized study and report called Prevalence of Violence, it is claimed that only 3% of these sexual assaults will ever be reported, so multiply 1,300 times 33 to approximately get the real numbers of sexual assaults and rapes occurring within Cuomo’s agency.

“The state’s mental health care system is likened to an animal house, rampant with sexual assaults and rapes; it is a corrupt system that is totally out of control.” – Michael Carey – Civil Rights and Disability Rights Advocate

https://www.mass.gov/service-details/prevalence-of-violence

Hardly any safety and abuse prevention measures have been put in place to protect the most vulnerable from being sexually assaulted or raped. New York State’s main mission is not to put people with disabilities first or provide them safe care and services, but is instead to discriminate against the disabled, to treat them unequally and to use them for financial exploitation. Massive amounts of Medicaid dollars, the peoples tax dollars, are going to enrich well connected political people and entities. New York State continues to cover-up most of the severe damages to precious human beings to keep their Medicaid fraud ponzi scheme going. Well just like Bernie Madoff was finally caught, now Governor Cuomo and his administration are being caught and exposed.

One America News Network called Michael Carey, a well- known and well respected Civil Rights and Disability Rights Advocate, as well as the founder of the Jonathan Carey Foundation, seeking answers surrounding the Cuomo sex abuse scandal. The floodgates were opened further and the wide-scale corruption and the criminal cover-ups of almost all reported sexual assaults by Governor Cuomo’s fraudulent Justice Center abuse hotline were further exposed.

On top of the wide-scale discrimination and civil rights atrocities, the Jonathan Carey Foundation is bringing to light the illegal and extremely dangerous placements of convicted sex offenders into group homes. Dozens of sexual predators, level 2 and level 3 sex offenders have been located living in facilities and group homes throughout New York State from a partial list of facilities and minimum research. Statistically, the numbers appear to be in the many hundreds.

Walking On Thin Ice in the Arctic – Raising Awareness for the Cholera Crisis in Yemen

The Yemen Cholera Crisis has taken the lives of 2,300 in the last year

Guinness World Record holder to travel to the Arctic Circle in Winter to raise money for the Humanitarian Crisis in Yemen

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, October 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Holiday Swap is raising awareness and financial support to purchase and distribute essential medicine in Yemen to combat the cholera epidemic, which is currently affecting over 1 million people and has already taken the lives of over 2,300 individuals in the past year.

https://www.gofundme.com/yemens-cholera-crisis

To kickstart the initiative, James Asquith, Holiday Swap CEO, will be travelling as close to the North Pole as possible (80 degrees north of the Arctic Circle, where it will be dark for 24 hours a day) on November 26, 2018 to shed light on the public health crisis in Yemen.

After Asquith officially became the youngest person to travel to all 196 countries in the world, he said of the fundraising project that “the purpose of this trip is to push my limits, as I trek through the Arctic during the 24-hour dark winter, and raise much needed awareness for the public health crisis that Yemen is currently facing.

“The crisis in Yemen is hugely under reported, and this trip 1,300 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle does not come without high risks; however, I am willing to take those risks to highlight this cause.”

The initial goal at Holiday Swap, initiated by the CLO Harley Auerbach, is to raise $50,000 to help fight against a very treatable and preventable disease. All donations are welcome, no matter how big or small. 100% of the contributions will go directly to supporting those suffering in Yemen.

Legislative package received strong support from the entertainment industry which had highly publicized cases of sexual misconduct in recent years.

The Law Office of Curt Surls (N/A:N/A)

California’s legislative actions are in line with a growing trend among states … Many states are enacting or amending laws to strengthen the protection against sexual harassment in recent years”

— Curt Surls, Employment Lawyer

MANHATTAN BEACH, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, October 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — California Governor Jerry Brown recently signed four bills that toughen the protection against sexual harassment in the workplace. The bills were part of a legislative package that received strong support from the entertainment industry, which had to deal with numerous cases of highly publicized cases of sexual misconduct in recent years. California Employment Lawyer Curt Surls commented on these bills.

Senate Bill 820 deals with confidentiality provisions in settlements relating to sexual misconduct. Specifically, settlement agreements “that prevents the disclosure of factual information related to a claim filed in a civil action or a complaint filed in an administrative action . . . is prohibited”, if such agreement is regarding sexual assault, sexual harassment, workplace sexual harassment or discrimination, or sexual harassment or discrimination by owner of housing accommodation. The bill also prohibits courts from entering any order that prohibits the disclosure of such information. Interestingly, the bill does contain an exception that allows the claimant to request the inclusion of a confidentiality provision to keep such information private. While the purpose of such exception is understandable, it remains to be seen as to whether the exception could eventually swallow the whole, especially if most defendants or accused will simply require the claimant to request such a confidentiality provision as a condition of settlement.

Senate Bill 826 requires California public companies to have at least 1 female board of director by end of 2019. Then, by 2021, any public company with 5 board of directors must have at least 2 female directors and any public company with 6 or more board of directors must have at least 3 female directors. The presence of female decision makers on the board have been advocated by sexual harassment experts as a way of meaningfully impacting the corporate response to sexual harassment and discrimination problems.

Senate Bill 1300 and 1343 seek to broaden the scope of protection by sexual harassment laws. Specifically, Senate Bill 1300 strengthens employer liability where sexual misconduct is committed by independent contractors and non-employees in the course of business. This was viewed as a very important measure by the entertainment industry. Senate Bill 1343 strengthens employer requirements pertaining to sexual harassment training.

Mr. Surls notes that "California’s legislative actions are in line with a growing trend among states across the United States. Many states are enacting or amending laws to strengthen the protection against sexual harassment in recent years."

ABC Good Morning America Report: Why women may fear speaking out about workplace sexual harassment

In NY most sexual predators that rape the disabled escape justice

The most dangerous people and criminals are those that protect and shield sexual predators and rapists allowing them to continue to rape and destroy more innocent victims’ lives

Top Cuomo administration officials directly involved in criminal cover-ups of sexual assaults

I could have stayed in that house for years and abused him every day without anybody even noticing at all. It was a predator's dream.”

— Stephen DeProspero – Former NYS employee & convicted sexual predator

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, October 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Jonathan Carey Foundation is uncovering the rampant sexual abuse within Cuomo’s mental health care system and the wide-scale cover-ups similar to the Catholic Church. Thousands of sexual assaults and rapes are reported to Governor Andrew Cuomo’s abuse hotline and most are never reported to local police or ever criminally investigated. Almost all sex crimes committed against our most vulnerable are never criminally investigated, never reported to county elected district attorneys and will never see a court room.

To give you an idea of how rampant the sexual abuse and cover-ups are it is important to document some key facts. Governor Andrew Cuomo is without question operating his mental agencies almost identical to the Catholic Church, keeping almost everything internal. Less than 1% of sex crimes reported to the fraudulent Justice Center abuse hotline are ever prosecuted. To wrap your mind around the scope of the astronomical and absolute rampant sexual abuse occurring multiply 1,300 sexual assaults times 33 to get the approximate numbers within the Office of People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) system annually. OPWDD is only one of six mental health agencies in New York State that internally report sex crimes. State records obtained through Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) by Michael Carey reveal an average of 1,300 reported sexual abuse cases within OPWDD alone and according to a well known study called Prevalence of Violence only 3% of these sexual assaults are ever reported.

https://www.mass.gov/service-details/prevalence-of-violence

Governor Andrew Cuomo set up an internal abuse hotline for people with disabilities, having the audacity to name it the Justice Center for the Protection of People with Special Needs (Justice Center) which is doing almost the direct opposite from its name. This is fraudulent whitewash state agency that was set up to cover-up. Governor Andrew Cuomo by law requires mandated reporters and witnesses of sex crimes to report to his abuse hotline, there is no law requiring these sex crimes to be immediately reported to 911 so local police can respond. This is purposeful and this is how the Cuomo administration continues to cover-up almost all reported sexual assaults and rapes of the disabled.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ViRj7sz6NOU&t=3s

New York State is discriminating against people with disabilities by denying them equal access to 911 first responder medical and police services when they are victims of sex crimes. New York State is denying people with disabilities living outside their family homes their constitutional rights to ‘equal protect of laws.’ One million New Yorkers with disabilities which are the governor’s numbers are being treated unequally and as far lower class citizens and residents similar to the discrimination that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. fought against.

On top of these wide-scale discrimination and civil rights atrocities, the Jonathan Carey Foundation is bringing to light the illegal and extremely dangerous placements of convicted sex offenders into group homes. Dozens of sexual predators, level 2 and level 3 sex offenders have been located living in facilities and group homes throughout New York State from a partial list of facilities and minimum research. Statistically, the numbers appear to be in the hundreds.

Throughout New York State and our country, all sexual predators must be immediately removed from all facilities and group homes that allow them easy access to prey on and sexual assault or rape people with disabilities. This is outrageous and unconscionable that anyone would conceive of such a practice, more less implement it. These practices are obviously a direct danger to all residents, but also a direct danger to staff and the general community. Group homes are scattered throughout our communities and are not locked down facilities, sexual predators can easily leave practically whenever they like. It is important to note that sexual predators and pedophiles sexually assault extremely large numbers of victims according to a State psychologist before they are ever caught.

Ekene A. "Kennie" Amaefule of Caring Hearts International to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

AUBURN, WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, October 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Ekene A. Amaefule, or Kennie as she is popularly known, learned a lot of valuable lessons from her parents. She learned the worth of an education from her father, and the qualities that make for a great nurse from her mother. Today she is a Senior Clinical Reviewer (RN, MN, CRRN) who’s cherished by her employer and patients for 15 years of honorable and brilliant service. Perhaps more important than anything else, Kennie’s parents taught her to be a philanthropist—to take care of the other children who had less privilege, little food or clothes, or looked sickly. Kennie says that growing up. there was always an extra relative around, and some extra plates set at the table.

Kennie’s incredible heart led to her be honored as a social activist, to adopt two teensy preemie twin sons (now 15), and to be a heroine and wish granter for orphans and other citizens of Nigeria. Kennie founded a non-profit organization known as Caring Hearts International that is trying to resolve many of the issues confronting people in her native country (Kennie has lived and worked in the Seattle area of the US since 1981.) For sure, Nigerians lack clean water and that can lead to various diseases, so Kennie and her volunteers helped construct a well in the eastern part of Nigeria. The real problem though, is that in a country ripe with natural resources, those in power keep too much to themselves, so the rich get richer, and the poverty level just grows.

Quality medical care is hard to come by or too expensive, so one of the main goals of Caring Hearts International is to complete the free medical clinic they’ve been constructing in Nigeria. Generous Kennie used her own tax refund check to get a roof on the building this Summer, and she has tons of medical equipment sitting in her Washington garage. Getting plumbing and electrical wiring set up is the next step, which won’t likely happen before the end of the year as anticipated, unless some new funding comes through.

In addition to medical care, Kennie and her crew will oversee a women’s center with services that help women develop marketable skills, and also micro loans for young people—to help them learn trades, expand skills and become entrepreneurs. The governor of Imo State in Nigeria recognized Kennie’s contributions across his nation, and here in the US she was recently named Woman of the Month by P.O.W.E.R, an executive women’s group.

Kennie works for the VA Puget Sound Health Care System in Seattle, Washington. Before pursuing Nursing, she worked in the US as an actress movie extra and did some modeling. She is certainly a beautiful woman, with luminous skin and prominent cheekbones that once prompted an agent to call her “My African Princess.” What makes Kennie truly beautiful is that open, caring heart, and benevolent spirit. It might also be the glow of accomplishment that comes from raising five kids while having a meaningful career, advancing her education, staying positive, and doing good on a global level.

CUTV News Radio will feature Ekene A. Amaefule of Caring Hearts International in an interview with Jim Masters on Friday, October 19th at 12:00 p. m. EDT

Author Barbara A. Pierce to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

WHITE PLAINS, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, October 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Learning can be fun, but for teachers, finding fun activities to stimulate an interest in learning can be challenging.

Barbara A. Pierce is a retired elementary school teacher and author of 14 books for children.

Pierce is the author of six children’s books: The Perfect Place for Toodles; Mama Lupita’s Puree Ole; A Mystery in Winters Park; The Game That Sam Plays; Sophie Virginia and the Little Red Boots; and The Emperor’s Regret. She has also written three books of poetry for children: From an Ant Hill Springs a Mountain; Whichever Way the Wind Blows; Just South of the Rainbow. Her next book What’s Troubling the Old Manor House is currently awaiting release.

“I was a child myself. I was independent, too. And sometimes I had to experience something painful in order to learn a lesson,” says Pierce. “So in my books, I always try to find a lesson.”

Pierce was inspired to write her books because, as an elementary school teacher for over 40 years, she was always looking for materials to keep her students excited and interested in learning.

“We always played games in class, but it was usually games I had invented for them to play. It was fun but it had substance to it,” says Pierce. “That was my goal: to write something that would encourage them to want to read, to want to participate and want to learn. Once they got up, it was hard to sit them down.”

Pierce also developed A Challenge of Common Knowledge and A Challenge of Common Knowledge II, a collection of 401 queries and responses across a variety of subject matter, including mathematics, social studies, language arts, science, art and more. The format of the book makes it easy to create challenging activities to stimulate an interest in learning.

“A Challenge of Common Knowledge is a book of trivia for grades four through six,” says Pierce. “It covers common knowledge like the temperature at which water boils, the bones in the ear, the answer to a division problem, and even which entertainer popularized the Moonwalk. These are entertaining questions that break up the monotony of the academic work.”

Pierce says she is most proud of Remembering our Black Trailblazers and Their Legacies and its follow-up Remembering our Black Trailblazers and Their Legacies II.

“I found that so many black children are just not aware of their heritage and how much black people have contributed to this society,” says Pierce. “Black Americans have been an integral part of the American scene for hundreds of years. Those that you will read about here are the phoenixes that rose from the depths of slavery or segregated society. Against all odds through perseverance, drive, and commitment, they have accomplished greatness. Their dedication and hard work allowed them to rise above adversity with pride and dignity.

"The purpose of this book of brief biographies is to keep the memory of our black trailblazers alive and to inspire further research on these extraordinary individuals. In spite of the racial divide and the negative sentiments that existed during their time, they pursued a path that improved the dire circumstances of many. It often came at a cost. Nevertheless, adversity fueled their determination to make a difference. Their brave actions and significant contributions changed the course of history. The men and women mentioned in this book are but a fraction of those that were instrumental in bringing about that change."

CUTV News Radio will feature Barbara A. Pierce in an interview with Jim Masters on October 19th at 11am EDT.

I often see businesses that are not preparing for future disasters. Preparedness and response planning should be a priority, especially if the business is located in a region that is disaster-prone”

— Michael Jerome Riley, Sr., emergency responder

NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA, UNITED STATES, October 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Experienced emergency responder Michael J. Riley, Sr. has started a blog and commentary on matters related to emergency response management. He writes based on his “hands on” experience, as he is currently serving the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as an Emergency Response Manager.

Michael J. Riley, Sr. is planning to inform the public about such emergency response developments that they may not read about in the newspaper or see on television. He notes that “in the business context, while an emergency situation is stressful, chaotic and financially demanding, I often see businesses that are not preparing for future disasters. Preparedness and response planning should be a priority, especially if the business is located in a region or zone that is disaster-prone.”

Thus, corporate emergency response plans are fundamental to give a company the best possibilities to reduce the financial and logistical impact of a natural disaster.

Such corporate preparedness programs and applicable response plans should be reviewed for accuracy and effective responses when new or additional variables are identified. This goes hand-in-hand with training employees accordingly. Only employees who are familiar and trained in accordance with the corporate emergency response plan are prepared to apply the best emergency response practices pursuant to the Plan.

Such corporate preparedness programs must take into consideration, for example:
 IT Infrastructure: procedural details of computer backups, data restoration methods, the minimum requirements to re-establish business operations. Companies should consider outsourcing arrangements.
 Contact lists: emergency personnel must have reliable contact information for all people important for applying the plan. Such contact information should be reviewed frequently.
 Communications: there must be reliable communication channels to communicate with all parties involved.
 Logistics & Supply Chain: The plan should include possible alternate resources that may be available, as well as alternative suppliers.
 Essential Personnel: minimum staffing levels must be maintained.
 Equipment: minimum necessary equipment must be provided and launched to minimize down time.

Michael J. Riley will provide more information on such preparedness plans and other emergency response issues on his blog.

Citizens Commission on Human Rights Shifts the Paradigm in Mental Health Rights

Know your mental health rights by Citizens Commission on Human Rights

Citizens not only have a right to treatment of their choice. The right to refuse involuntary treatment is as important.

There is a tendency to speak about mental health rights only from the right to treatment perspective. We wanted to change the paradigm and teach people their legal rights to help prevent abuses…”

— Isabelle Vladoiu

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, October 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Citizens were presented with a completely different view on mental health rights in a one-day exhibit organized by the mental health watchdog group, Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR).

The main theme of the day was “Know Your Mental Health Rights!” The exhibit aimed to bring awareness of the rights people have from a human rights perspective when dealing with mental health challenges. This included a one-day mental health exhibit educating the citizens on the historical and contemporary psychiatric theories and practices.

Vigilance has never been more needed. Latest reports from IQVia show that in the United States alone, more than 80 million people are now on psychiatric drugs — almost 13 million are younger than 24 years old, including over 600,000 children ages 0-5 years old. All while the psychopharmaceutical industry represents an annual market value of more than 300 billion dollars (Source: IQVia Total Patient Tracker Database for 2017, extracted April 2018.)

Approximately one million people worldwide, including an estimated 100,000 Americans, are given electroshock every year, including the elderly, pregnant women and children.

Some treatments are so potentially harmful that the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Torture, Mr. Juan Méndez, recommended an “absolute ban on all forced and non-consensual” administration of “electroshock and mind-altering drugs.”

“There is a tendency to speak about mental health rights only from the right to treatment perspective,” said Isabelle Vladoiu, Citizens Commission on Human Rights spokesperson. “We wanted to change the paradigm and teach people their legal rights to help prevent abuses and be able to defend themselves against dangerous and unwanted treatments.”

A presentation covered rights from the Mental Health Declaration of Human Rights including the right to full informed consent and the right to not be given psychiatric or psychological treatment against your will. Participants were given information on their rights in case of emergency holds for mental illness and involuntary outpatient commitment.

The one day exhibit included a special showing of the CCHR multimedia exhibition Psychiatry: An Industry of Death. Visitors were given booklets documenting the harmful side effects of drugs including antidepressants, mood stabilizers, antipsychotics and stimulants and the link between psychotropic drugs, suicide and violence.

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) was co-founded in 1969 by the Church of Scientology and professor of psychiatry Dr. Thomas Szasz. The nonprofit mental health watchdog is responsible for helping to enact more than 180 laws protecting individuals from abusive or coercive practices. CCHR has long fought to restore basic inalienable human rights to the field of mental health, including, but not limited to, full informed consent regarding the medical legitimacy of psychiatric diagnosis, the risks of psychiatric treatments, the right to all available medical alternatives, and the right to refuse any treatment considered harmful.
