Freedom from Forced Treatment and Abuse in the Mental Health System!

End Psychiatric Treatment That Denies Human Rights!

Join The Center for the Human Rights of Users and Survivors of Psychiatry (CHRUSP), MindFreedom Int’l, PsychRights, The Icarus Project, We The People and more to rally for human rights in mental health treatment, policy, and culture!

Listen to some of most powerful voices from the psychiatric survivors movement and get inspired to stand up for human rights in psychiatry!

What do we want? Human Rights!

When do we want Them? Now!
