Citizens Commission on Human Rights South Africa is a non-profit, non-political, non-religious mental health watchdog. Its mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections.
As such, CCHR receives reports from individuals who have been abused after they sought help from psychiatrists and/or psychologists and were falsely diagnosed and forced to undergo unwanted and harmful psychiatric treatments, such as psychiatric drugs which are documented to cause serious side effects, involuntary commitment, or electroshock
. CCHR is often able to assist people with filing complaints or work with people’s attorneys to further investigate the person’s case.
If you or anyone you know has been harmed or damaged by psychiatric or mental health “treatment,” please fill out the form below with full particulars and any documentary evidence. All information received is kept in strict confidence.
