Carl Hager, director of the Seattle branch of a national group called the Citizens Commission on Human Rights, said the problem is that psychiatrists need to find reasons for prescribing drugs to support their livelihood.

People wearing T-shirts emblazoned with "psychiatry kills" unfurled banners around town denouncing psychiatry. Many of them handed out brochures claiming psychiatrists are "making drug addicts out of America's school children."

Hager said the practitioners of Scientology adhere to the idea that there is no such thing as mental illness.
