Welcome to Southern California Against Forced Treatment!

We are a grassroots group of Southern Californians who oppose forced psychiatric treatment. Our mission is to advocate for the complete abolition of any type of forced or coerced psychiatric treatment, including confinement in psychiatric institutions, forcible medication, electroshock therapy, and involuntary outpatient treatment. We support the self-determination, civil rights, and liberty of all people.

If you have survived any type of forced psychiatric intervention including a 5150 hold, forced medication, or Laura’s Law, you have come to the right place. Southern California Against Forced Treatment is a safe space for you to speak out against the injustices you have faced.

If you are an ally to psychiatric survivors and wish to support our advocacy, we welcome you to our cause.

Southern California Against Forced Treatment embracesĀ all forms of diversity and welcomes group members of different races, ethnicities, nationalities, religious backgrounds, genders, gender identities, sexual orientations, dis/abilities, ages, sizes, appearances, and political affiliations.
