For 50 years, psychiatry has promoted its theory that the only “treatment” for mental “illness” is psychiatric drugs. However, not only is the drugging of patients unnecessary—and expensive—it causes brain- and life-damaging side effects. The simple truth is that there are workable alternatives to psychiatry’s destructive treatments and you as a patient have the right to refuse it.

Attorney Gary Brown wants people to know that they have a right to say no to psychiatric treatment and drugs, that emotional upsets are normal part of life—they are not justification for locking someone away as a danger to themselves or others.

My phone # is 661-993-8410. This is a long incident which ultimately led to the Santa Clarita sheriffs department tricking me in to handcuffing handcuffing me to the ground injuring my leg & bruising my face even though they had my fulll cooperation. His name was Sargent Dividian. He bruised my face & threatened to taser me three times when all & all the sheriffs had my full cooperation. There is much more to the story in which I would like to discuss with you on the phone. I did say I felt suicidal & had a plan. But the cops came over & I was very cooperative but the cops tricked me in to be handcuffed & officer Divisidian called me an asshole & a jirk several times. There is alot more to the story that stems back to ECT treatment which has kept me up for going on four days now plus I have a migraine for more than for days as well. Plus a lady on a so called "confidential" hotline lied to me. I believe ECT treatment has a big role in this. There is much more to this story. Please call me at 661-993-8410 so I can explain the whole story 661-993-8410
