On World Mental Health Day Meet a Texas Hero Who is Helping Protect Victims of Psychiatry

Lee Spiller, Executive Director of Citizens Commission on Human Rights Texas

LOS ANGELES, Calif., Oct 10, 2023 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- "Psychiatry is a system that all too often works on the weakest, most vulnerable people," says Lee Spiller, Executive Director of Citizens Commission on Human Rights Texas. "It is a bullying system, and I just don't like bullies." Spiller is featured October 10 on the Scientology Network's World Mental Health Day marathon television event in an episode of Voices for Humanity.

For more than two decades, Spiller has been fighting for the rights of the victims of psychiatric abuse by investigating and exposing the psychiatric industry's corruption and systemic malfeasance.

"When you've met people that are inside a hospital and they can't get out, when you meet people who've been restrained, you understand just how fragile those rights are," he says. "When I see a chance to make change, I try to make change."

Spiller's work is credited with the closure of 172 abusive psychiatric institutions and a 50 percent reduction in psychiatric drugging of foster children. And his activism within state government has directly led to the passage of dozens of state laws to prevent unscrupulous activities by psychiatry.
