In the Platform Statement of the association, one can read: Throughout the entire history of psychiatry, involuntary psychiatric interventions, and especially involuntary mental hospitalization, have been regarded as morally and professionally legitimate procedures. No group of physicians, lawyers, or social scientists has ever rejected such interventions as contrary to elementary principles of dignity and liberty and hence as morally and professionally illegitimate. The AAAIMH does. Board chairman of the association was Thomas Szasz. The association provided legal help to psychiatric patients and published a journal, . The organisation was dissolved in 1980.
