Janos Dobos and Klara Hidvegi are fighting the corruption of the psychiatric industry in Hungary

VOICES FOR HUMANITY airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Scientology Network

BUDAPEST, Hungary /CitizenWire/ -- Scientology Network's VOICES FOR HUMANITY - the weekly series presenting heroic change makers from a variety of faiths, cultures and nations working to uplift their communities - announces a new episode featuring the work of activists fighting psychiatric abuse János Dobos and Klára Hídvégi, premiering June 7, 2023.

Every year, ten to fifteen thousand Hungarians, including children, are involuntarily committed into psychiatric institutions where many experience horrific forms of torture - from being locked into caged beds to being forced to undergo electroshock therapy. János Dobos and Klára Hídvégi are successfully fighting the corruption of the psychiatric industry in Hungary, and their work is bringing hope and justice to the nation.

About János Dobos:

As a child growing up in his native Budapest, Hungary, János Dobos witnessed bullying and injustice, leading him to forge a lifelong commitment to standing up and fighting for the rights of others. As an adult, János became aware of the massive numbers of psychiatric abuse victims in his country. He decided to join forces with Citizens Commission on Human Rights to raise awareness of the problem, offer legal assistance to psychiatry's victims and fight the industry in the courts and legislature. His work has directly resulted in criminal convictions of psychiatrists and the closure of the country's oldest psychiatric institution.

János Dobos is the president of Citizens Commission on Human Rights for Hungary.

About Klára Hídvégi:

Klára Hídvégi saw the traumatic effects of the psychiatric industry's practices firsthand when she witnessed her mother repeatedly try to commit suicide after being prescribed psychiatric drugs. This fueled Klára's mission to combat psychiatric abuse and led her to join Citizens Commission on Human Rights. Together, Klára and János have built a powerful movement in Hungary to expose and eradicate the horrific abuses of the psychiatric industry preying upon defenseless victims.

Klára Hídvégi currently serves as the production director of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights for Hungary.
