PsychRights is described as a "public interest law firm whose mission is to mount a strategic legal campaign against forced psychiatric drugging and electroshock in the United States akin to what Thurgood Marshall and the NAACP mounted in the 40's and 50's on behalf of African American civil rights."
Forced electroshock therapy must be stopped.
It is a treatment left over from the dark ages of psychiatry.
PsychRights is providing a great service by advocating for human rights of individuals who have been labeled and forced into ineffective, harmful treatment.
PsychRights is fighting a worthy, but extremely difficult battle on behalf of those who are suffering from psychiatric abuses. I'd like to see this organization replicated across the country, in law school clinics, and in community nonprofits. The services are very badly needed throughout the country.
