Earlier this year, the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) launched a petition requesting the U.S. House of Representatives Veterans Affairs Committee to investigate with public hearings the role of psychiatric drugs in veteran suicides, sudden deaths and recent shootings at Fort Hood and the Washington Navy Yard.
This petition launch coincided with the new documentary: The Hidden Enemy: Inside Psychiatry’s Covert Agenda, which covers psychiatric drug abuse in the military and includes interviews with veterans brought to the brink of suicide after being prescribed cocktails of psychiatric drugs documented to cause violent and suicidal behavior. According to a New York Times article, "War on Drugs," of April 6, 2013, between 2005 and 2011 the military increased its prescriptions of psychoactive drugs (antipsychotics, sedatives, stimulants and mood stabilizers) by almost 700 percent.
Because of this, CCHR is making available the Hidden Enemy DVD for public showings. Kalee Madorin, Executive Director of CCHR Nashville says, “We need to reach hundreds and thousands of people with the truth in this video. If anyone wants to set up a public showing, we will be there.”
To contact CCHR Nashville for more information or to arrange a public showing of the documentary, visit cchrnashville.org.
CITIZENS COMMISSION ON HUMAN RIGHTS is a nonprofit mental health watchdog established by the Church of Scientology and the late Dr. Thomas Szasz, professor emeritus of psychiatry at SUNY Health Science Center, Syracuse to investigate psychiatric human rights abuses.
