Since 2001, there have been more than 150 worldwide drug regulatory warnings and studies issued about the dangerous—often lethal effects—of psychotropic drugs such as these.

 

Located within CCHR Florida’s headquarters in Clearwater, Florida, this compelling exhibit chronicles the past few centuries of history of mental health treatment and the track record of psychiatric profession.
