“How Psychiatric Drugs Can Kill Your Child” Shown at Florida Human Rights Office

The documentary, “Dead Wrong” tells the story of how children are being put at risk by the use of psychiatric medications which have no valid scientific basis of use.

Clearwater, United States - June 13, 2018 /PressCable/ —

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights of Florida (CCHR), announced recently that they will be hosting a showing of the popular documentary, “Dead Wrong” in their downtown facility. The full-screen showing will be presented to visitors at no charge.

The theme of “Dead Wrong” is that children are being put at risk by the use of psychiatric medications which have no valid scientific basis of use. Documented instances of children dying as a result of psychiatric medication are included on the CCHR site (www.cchr.org).

According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), “We do not have an independent, valid test for ADHD, and there is no data to indicate that ADHD is due to a brain malfunction.” (NIH Consensus statement) [1]

A major danger is that childhood behaviors can be diagnosed as mental disorders for various reasons including Federal reimbursements. Parents who feel their child is being forced into taking prescription mental drugs are advised by CCHR to follow these steps:

1) Demand to see the lab test, brain scan, blood test or X-ray that proves the child has a mental disorder.

2) If drugs are recommended for a child, print the international drug warnings for the doctor or psychiatrist. (Practitioners may sometimes get their data on drug safety from sales reps.)

3) If the psychiatrist or doctor claims evidence of a “disorder”, parents may forward the claim information to CCHR for review.

4) Be aware of non-drug, non-harmful methods for treating childhood issues. Parents have a right to another opinion, and data on alternatives.

Following are the number of children currently on psychiatric drugs in the United States:

0-1 Years 274,804 babies on psychiatric drugs

2-3 Years 370,778 toddlers on psychiatric drugs

4-5 Years 500,948 kindergarteners on psychiatric drugs

6-12 Years 4,130,340 schoolkids on psychiatric drugs

13-17 Years 3,617,593 youths on psychiatric drugs

Diagnosis for these prescriptions is not done by medical test, but a checklist of behaviors according to the viewpoint of the observer.

“The epidemic of child drugging in the U.S. is not in the interests of these children or their parents,” said Diane Stein, President of CCHR Florida. “False diagnoses must be resisted if we are to hope for competent future generations.”

McALLEN, Texas — Protests and rallies focused around the separation of families at the U.S.-Mexico border are scheduled this weekend, while more than two dozen congressional Democrats plan to visit detention facilities in Texas.

Administration seeks to expand immigrant family detention

Jun 23, 2018

SANTA ANA, Calif. — The Trump administration is calling for the expanded use of family detention for immigrant parents and children who are stopped along the U.S.-Mexico border, a move decried by advocates as a cruel and ineffective attempt to deter families from coming to the United States. Immigration authorities on Friday issued a notice that they may seek up to 15,000 beds to detain families. The Justice Department has also asked a federal court in California to allow children to be detained longer and in facilities that don't require state licensing while they await immigration court proceedings. "The current...

McALLEN, Texas — Two days after President Donald Trump ordered an end to the separation of families at the border, federal authorities Friday cast about for jail space to detain them together, leaving hundreds of parents in the dark on when they would be reunited with their children. Immigration and Customs Enforcement posted a notice saying it is looking into creating 15,000 beds for use in detaining immigrant families. A day earlier, the Pentagon agreed to provide space for as many as 20,000 migrants on U.S. military bases. Beyond that, however, there was nothing but frustration and worry for many...

LOS ANGELES — President Donald Trump's former longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen retweeted a photo of himself with comedian Tom Arnold, who is working on a TV show to hunt down recordings of the president, fueling speculation Friday that Cohen has secret tapes of Trump and is willing to share them.
