MY Shock , Outrage and Unbelievable Sadness

I recently completed a detailed review of 17 years of doctor, psychiatric and mental hospitalization records, notes , and so-called criminal records, I have felt  outrage, shock and unbelievable sadness in realizing how I,  the mental health system, and the criminal justice system have failed and criminalized my son. Among many other revealing and disturbing facts in these records, I discovered  extreme drug overdosing and failure of the authorities to report his rape at age 17.

My name is Cindi Fisher and I am the Mother of Siddharta Fisher. My son, age 34, is in Clark County Jail in WA waiting to go to trial for spitting on a policeman and trespassing. He is suffering from trauma induced psychosis that should have been diagnosed as PTSD many years ago and he has NEVER been treated for it; and he is also suffering from extreme overdosing and the dangerous withdraw effect from strong brain altering psychiatric drugs. These side effects vary among individuals and can last from 1 day to many months.  These withdraw effects can and have caused  self harming acts, hallucinations, confusion, and aggressive, bizarre behavior in my son. These drug induced behaviors and acts  have been and are criminalized.   He has been in jail over 60 days and both his mental and physical health is deteriorating. He is in crisis. Please read his story below including how his adult  criminalization cycle began when he was overdosed 1200% with a neuroleptic  drug as a 17 year old minor  and read his story on the web  about  the year following the overdose  as well as how the authorities failed  mandatory reporting and investigation of his report of being raped at age 17…

                        OVER DOSED 1200%  as an African American Minor

1)    In December 1994, I  unknowingly allowed my son to be experimented on by the psychiatric profession;                      a  psychiatrist prescribed, my then minor 17 year old son, 6 mg of  risperdal, the maximum adult dose of this brain altering neuroleptic medication  (unbeknownst to me at the time FDA recommendation for minors age 5-17 was              .5 mg instead of  6. ) This was 12 times or almost 1200% above the maximum recommended dose for youth. This began a vicious cycle of  drugging and criminalization of acts that were drug or withdraw induced.  As he is continually drugged and stops due to extreme side effects, he continually displays confused  behavior, including  self harm, extreme physical distress resulting in increased confusion and aggressiveness, which in turn results in acts that are criminalized and the “treatment” is again mandatory drugging .                                                                                                                                                  * Read  DR. Peter Breggin’s  books entitled Targeting Children of Color   and    Your Drug may Be your Problem!

Mothers across the Country in Shock, Outrage and Deep Heartbreak

I have since started a group called the M.O.M.S. Movement. It stands for the Movement   Of   Mothers   Standing-up-together.  I have been in contact, and now advocate for and with Mothers across the country. We each have experienced shock, outrage and deep heartbreak concerning the diagnosis, drugging, seclusion, and restraint methods, as well as exclusion of family and friends during the “treatment” of our  young adult children as mentally ill and the acts that are criminalized. You can read more Mothers’ stories and our advocacy and Keep updated on Siddharta on our web page at
