WARNING MEXICO STATE OF PSYCHIATRIC ABUSE
Citizens Commission on Human Rights brought their hard-hitting Psychiatry: An Industry of Death exhibit to Toluca, the capital of the State of Mexico, alerting the community to experimental psychiatric treatments and the damage they cause. These treatments include the practice of labeling normal behavior as “disorders” and administering psychiatric drugs to children and teens despite many of these drugs having “black box” warnings including suicide and death.
The exhibit was opened by the mayor of Toluca, who encouraged his constituents to find out more about these and other abusive psychiatric practices to protect themselves and their families. Also attending were the city’s bishop and the state’s human rights commissioner.
Subsequently toured by more than 3,600 Toluca residents, the exhibit educates, informs and provides guidance to lawmakers, members of the medical profession, human rights advocates and the general public. The exhibit’s purpose is to encourage people to take action to report and prosecute psychiatric fraud and crime and bring about needed reform.
Rare photos, documentary films and the multimedia exhibit provide a vivid overview of the history and current state of psychiatry. This includes graphic displays of psychosurgery, forced restraints and sadistic psychiatric treatments such as high-voltage electroshock and prefrontal lobotomy.
WE REALLY want to hear FROM YOU
“I saw this documentary [The Hidden Enemy] air on the Scientology Network and found it eye-opening. I have a 32-year-old friend who was in the air force and then put on a bunch of psychiatric drugs and even institutionalized. She is now out of that facility and weaning off the drugs. I would love to watch it with her and give her the DVD to share with her vet friends.”
“I have made good use of the materials sent to me. I have been giving material to local authorities related to mental health, police and the court of San Juan. I have been really proactive in giving information about The Marketing of Madness.”
“I am very grateful and excited for this incredible project. I received The Marketing of Madness Education Package. I am sure this project will succeed because it will help people to understand that mental health is not a game.”
“I would like to info you that I have received the materials as previewed: a DVD, a manual for teachers and pamphlets. I made another presentation [of this information] to about 20 teachers of a public school. Thank you.”
“I am interested in getting the kit. I want to know more about mental health problems. I would like to know how to help people with these situations. In my case, I am motivated due to having relatives with these problems.”
“I did receive the kit. Thank you. I have shared it. Individual reactions have varied from shock to ‘I knew what they were doing wasn’t right, but I just couldn’t put my finger on it.’ All who have seen the video have come away with a better understanding of what’s going on.”
