Overview of Freedom of Mind

Freedom of Mind Resource Center, Inc. was founded by Steven Hassan to help educate and rescue victims of undue influence and mind control, and to help them recover.

We seek to educate the public, mental health professionals, lawmakers, law enforcement, religious leaders, and community leaders about how to identify and fight undue influence. Undue influence is at the heart of not only destructive cults, but also controlling relationships, violent extremism, trafficking, and parental alienation.


Part of our mission is to educate the public about undue influence and how to fight it. We are open to requests for interviews, quotes, and information related to undue influence.
