CHRC Mission Statement

Mission and Purpose

The UN has recognized that the human rights of the children of the world need protection on a supra-national level. The mission of the Council for Human Rights of Children is to protect children and adolescents from abuse by parents, schools, institutions, society and the mental health professions.

The Council seeks to promote in children and youth bodily and mental self-ownership and the right to be free from violence from others. The Council is particularly interested in finding solutions to situations where the help and protection offered to children and adolescents becomes itself coercive and abusive.

The Council for Human Rights of Children is a prestigious international think-tank with a purpose of developing and codifying methods to assure the rights of children are maintained and championed.

The Council for Human Rights of Children adheres to guidelines consistent with human rights as described by the United Nations definition:

  1. We must protect the right of children to live in their families, rather than in institutions or other placements.
  2. We must protect the right of children to grow up in an atmosphere of love. Living in a family is not enough—we must arrange for loving families.
  3. We must encourage peaceful relationships among family members and within the human community. This is part of protecting the right of children to live in a social context of peace—not violence.
  4. Whenever a person is institutionalized, such as in a mental hospital, the goal of the therapy must be to release the person from the institution. Institutionalization is a restriction of the right to freedom.
  5. We must uphold the right of children to be protected from medications with dangerous side effects and from medications used for social control.
  6. We must uphold the right of individuals to be idiosyncratic and different from the norm and protect them from mind control through chemical substances.
  7. We must protect children and adolescents from mind control through therapy that uses unfortunate, inaccurate metaphors, such as that of emotional problems being a chronic illness.
