The Citizens Commission on Human Rights describes itself as "a non-profit, public benefit organization dedicated to investigating and exposing psychiatric violations of human rights." It was founded in 1969 by the Church of Scientology.
"CCHR was co-founded as an independent mental health watchdog in 1969 by the Church of Scientology and the late Professor of Psychiatry Emeritus Dr Thomas Szasz at a time when patients were being warehoused in institutions, abused, stripped of their constitutional, civil and human rights, and left without recourse."
