About CCHR California

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights was co-founded in 1969 by the Church of Scientology and the late Dr. Thomas Szaz, Professor of Psychiatry Emeritus to expose psychiatric violations of human rights and clean up the field of mental healing.

Alerted to the brutality of psychiatric treatment by author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard who wrote extensively about the abuses of psychiatric patients, CCHR today stands as a powerful voice of reason for those abused and their on-going advocacy for reforms.
