About the Law Project For Psychiatric Rights

The Law Project for Psychiatric Rights (PsychRights) was incorporated as an Alaska non-profit on November 6, 2002, to undertake a coordinated, strategic, legal effort seeking to end the abuses against people diagnosed with mental illness through individual legal representation.  These abuses are describe in Psychiatry: Force of Law.    PsychRights is especially focused on unwarranted court ordered psychiatric drugging requiring people diagnosed with mental illness to submit or be forcibly subjected to brain damaging psychiatric drugs  (& electroshock).  The strategic campaign is described in some detail in How the Legal System Can Help Create a Recovery Culture in Mental Health Systems, which also discusses the necessity of educating the public about the truth and creating alternatives to the all drug, all the time mental illness system. Due to the massive psychiatric drugging of children and youth, especially poor, disadvantaged children, PsychRights has made it a priority.
