Coercion is one of society’s biggest problems, yet most people don’t know it’s there…

No one is born with a desire for physical or emotional abuse, to die unnecessarily because of faith-based beliefs, or to injure innocent people for their cause, yet these things happen to millions of people every day. All are victims of coercion, which uses manipulation techniques to control and command victims, especially young people, to act against their own best interests.

Sadly, we live in a world where coercion is rife, but we don’t provide young people with the tools to recognize and prevent it. Globally, more than 800 million people are being coerced, in ways which take a huge financial and emotional toll on society. This means more than 10% of the worldwide population are being encouraged to act against their own better interests, many without even knowing it.

The Open Minds Foundation has been established to help make positive change, preventing coercion & coercive control, to help eliminate the effects on society.
