Hoax alerts: Watch out for false info on Internet
These are updated notices about misinformation and fraud found on the Internet that may be relevant to MindFreedom members.
- Hoax about suicide and “schizophrenia.”
- A participant on a Yahoo Internet group posted a hoax — intentionally or not — that MindFreedom is “associated” with an effort to help supply “techniques” to encourage suicide by people diagnosed as “schizophrenic.” This is of course totally false, and is a hoax. Here is the truth.
- An individual against our human rights, D. J. Jaffe, is circulating a rumor that MFI may be linked to “Scientology”
- MindFreedom International is 100 percent independent, with no funding from or links to any government, corporation, drug company or religion. However, defenders of the mental health system have tried to say that all critics of the psychiatric system “must” be linked to Scientology, and their organization CCHR. A promoter of more forced psychiatric drugging, D. J. Jaffe, is circulating this rumor by Twitter, etc.
