Twenty-two percent of foster children in California are prescribed powerful, mind-altering anti-psychotic drugs. This is the story of a relentless advocate for children’s rights in the state capital of California, Jim Van Hill, as he takes on corruption at the highest level of state government, putting a halt to the plans of the pharmaceutical and psychiatric industries to profit off California’s children.
Born in Glendale, California, Jim Van Hill had an idyllic childhood up until psychiatric malfeasance took away a close companion. With eyes open to the dangers this industry poses, Jim’s path in life is no surprise. Inspired by his personal experience, Jim accepted the responsibility of protecting kids from the same fate his friend suffered. Jim connects with the Citizens Commission on Human Rights and together they educate state legislature on the corrupt practices of the psychiatric industry. His work in developing the Foster Youth Bill of Rights secured a landmark victory for foster children, earning them the right to refuse medication and to have self-determination over psychological screening. Jim Van Hill is currently the Executive Director of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights Sacramento.
