Group Demands Competent Medical Care For The Homeless, Not Psychiatry

Nov. 26, 2006 – A documentary entitled “Psychiatry An Industry of Death” was sent to the Hon. Gordon Campbell, the Premier of British Columbia and Allan Campbell, Director of Mental Health Addiction Services, by the Citizens Commission on Human Rights in an effort to dissuade them from the use of psychiatrists and their practices in a proposed Victoria facility for the homeless and drug addicted.

It was pointed out to the Premier that the downsizing of Riverview Psychiatric Hospital in Coquitlam, British Columbia was and is a complete failure but so is the practice of psychiatry itself.

The individuals who were released from the hospital with nowhere go do need a facility to care for them but these poor homeless souls were already damaged beyond repair by psychiatric “treatment” long before the downsizing occurred.

In the words of renowned psychiatrist and co-founder of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights, Thomas Szasz, “What these people do need is ‘three hots and a cot’ in a safe environment with plenty of competent medical care and nutritional food. And take them to a movie once in awhile.”

Prior to the downsizing, these luckless individuals had already had their lives ruined by typical psychiatric practices such as the use of drugs like Thorazine, the “chemical straight jacket” or drugs that cause Tardive Dyskinesia or cause people to feel like they are “crawling out of their skin”.

Many of them have other permanent side effects such as ticks and dominant muscle spasms. Some of them could have, and probably did have their minds obliterated by the use of electric shock.

Brian Beaumont, president of the Vancouver chapter of CCHR said, “Through rare historical and contemporary footage and interviews with more than 160 doctors, attorneys, educators, survivors and experts on the mental health industry and its abuses, the riveting documentary ‘Psychiatry An Industry of Death’ blazes the bright light of truth on the brutal pseudo science and the multi-billion dollar fraud that is psychiatry.”

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights was established by the Church of Scientology to investigate and expose psychiatric violations of human rights.
