Involuntary Commitment, Forced Drugging, Duress,
Patient's Legal Rights
Left click on a book title for a synopsis and reader
|Too often a person's rights all but disappear once they
have been signed over to a "mental institution". Part of the problem is that government
agencies and the legal justice system have fallen for the theories and practices of the psychiatric
field, but also, the laws and rules are often unclear.
Psychiatric drugs and electric shock "treatments" can severely
damage a person's body, mind and emotions, and it behooves every person to know their rights if they
ever find themselves being "committed".
