Charles is an intelligent and spiritual man who likes to play the guitar and read the Bible. He likes video games and wants to visit his friends and family members. He is not allowed to leave the premises of the group home currently. People who know Charles describe him as having a great sense of humor. He is concerned about losing his personality—the things he values— due to the loss of his liberties, forced drugging and shock. He shared, “After a shock, I forget my personality; I have to ask people, 'Am I still funny?’ 'Is this funny?'”
Charles has reached out to human rights groups like MindFreedom International, who have sent out action alerts on his behalf. Unfortunately the public outcry has not been enough to stop this. Please help us cover the costs of retaining a lawyer who cares about Charles's human rights, and paying for other legal defense costs.
