    LOS ANGELES, July 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Flying over the beaches of Southern
 California this fourth of July will be a plane carrying the message,
 "Psychiatry Kills:  The Exhibit."  The message is being promoted by the
 Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), an international psychiatric
 watchdog organization.
     CCHR has been investigating and exposing psychiatric abuse for over
 30 years, and has recently opened a free public exhibit chronicling 300-years
 of abuse committed under the guise of mental health.  According to CCHR, the
 exhibit is vital viewing for all concerned with the inalienable human rights
 that are being violated by a mental health industry that is rife with abuse
 and fraud.
     The exhibit's compelling documentary-style photographs, exhibits, images
 and information chronicle the 300-year history of psychiatry's failures and
     Today, the psychiatric industry is a multi-billion dollar enterprise that
 has created a culture in which normal childhood behaviors and difficulties are
 fraudulently labeled symptoms of mental illnesses.  The result is millions of
 children taking dangerous mind-altering drugs, when no physical abnormalities
 or scientific evidence exists to support these so-called mental disorders.
 Thousands have died in psychiatric hospitals from deadly restraint procedures
 and other abuses.
     As a watchdog organization, CCHR has investigated and exposed issues such
 as Involuntary Commitment, forced psychiatric treatments, parents being
 coerced into drugging their children against their will, restraint deaths in
 psychiatric facilities, electroshock, psychiatric criminality, mental health
 fraud, failed government mental health programs and much more.
     CCHR is a non-profit, 501 c 3 organization, which operates in part, as a
 clearinghouse for the public, the media, and legislative bodies, in order to
 enact reform in the field of mental health.
     The public is invited to visit the exhibit at CCHR's international
 headquarters, located at 6616 Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles.  Or call
 1-800-869-CCHR for more information.
