The Psychiatry and Industry of Death Museum features documentaries and displays chronicling mental health barbarity spanning hundreds of years up to present day. Included are sections on psychiatry's infiltration of Hollywood, resulting in a staggering loss of talent, including Kurt Cobain, Marilyn Monroe and Judy Garland. The museum documents that psychiatry is an industry driven by profit, and provides practical guidance for lawmakers, doctors, human rights advocates and private citizens to take action in their own sphere, and to help protect themselves and others from the abuses in the mental health field.
Some of the statistics and facts shown in the museum include:
- 20 million children worldwide are taking psychiatric drugs, which can cause suicide, hostility, violence, mania and drug dependence.
- More than 100,000 patients die each year in psychiatric institutions.
- 10,000 people are killed every year due to electroshock, 460 volts of electricity sent searing through the brain.
- Psychiatrists and psychologists have raped 250,000 women, of every 20 of these victims one is likely to be a minor.
