Scientology Magazine Earns Religion Communicators Council Award
Date:3/6/2009

The Church of Scientology's Freedom Magazine article on psychiatric screening was awarded the DeRose-Hinkhouse Memorial Award from the Religion Communicators Council (RCC).

Los Angeles, Ca (PRWEB) March 6, 2009 -- Freedom Magazine, a Church of Scientology International publication has been recognized by the Religion Communicators Council (RCC) with the 2009 DeRose-Hinkhouse Memorial Awards Certificate of Merit for writing on the web. The award went to Psychiatric Screening: Destroying Lives for Profit, for its dispassionate look at the facts and figures of this psychiatric experiment and its casualties--our children.

The award-winning article details the case of Aliah Gleason, who was taken from school without her parents' consent and placed in Austin State Hospital. Aliah was hospitalized simply because her parents refused to place their 11-year-old daughter on dangerous psychiatric drugs that the FDA warns "increase the risk of suicidal thinking and behavior (suicidality) in children and adolescents." And Aliah was prescribed these drugs based only on her answers to the questions in a school-based psychiatric screening program.    

The Freedom feature traces the background of this experiment in human behavior, finding that such programs have ties to multibillion-dollar interests that will profit enormously from their implementation.

Purporting to prevent child suicide, screening programs factually increase its risk, according to Freedom Magazine. The article cites a Duke University study that found that surveys can influence behavior and conduct. Thus, the article notes, "…screening programs have made some health practitioners nervous that peoples' problems will worsen by being pumped with questions about depression and thoughts of suicide."

The Religion Communicators Council is an interfaith association of religion communicators at work in print and electronic communication, marketing and in public relations. The DeRose-Hinkhouse Memorial Awards are presented annually to members of the RCC who demonstrate excellence in religion communications and public relations.

Premised on the principles of human rights, Freedom Magazine has been a catalyst for groundbreaking reforms in the public interest and has been broadly hailed as a leading voice for human rights and civil liberties for more than 40 years. Freedom Magazine is published by the Church of Scientology International. Scientology churches publish 20 local and regional editions of the magazine.
