In past years for World Mental Health Day, the group has hosted lunch and learns on topics to help people. In 2017 it was 5 Tips to Overcome Attention Issues, and in 2018 it was 5 Tips for a Stress- Free Life. This year, the group plans to do something in person again to spread awareness about mental health and maintaining a drug-free life.
World Mental Health Day occurs each year on October 10th.
CCHR has long been an advocate for human rights, especially as relates to patients rights in the field of mental health. At CCHRNashville.org/Report-Abuse, it states, If you or anyone you know has been harmed or damaged by psychiatric or mental health treatment, please fill out the form below or download a report form (pdf) (Word doc) and mail it in.
One of the many virtual resources CCHR has to offer are 30 second public service messages as well as full-length documentaries aimed at informing people of the dangers of psychiatric drugs and other methods of treatment. According to CCHR.org, Posing as authorities, their pseudoscience now woven through our educational systems and medical institutions, psychiatrists wreak havoc across the entire social fabric, by prescribing a smorgasbord of mind-altering drugs to adults and children. These drugs are so dangerous that government authorities have issued black box warnings of mania, hostility, suicide, stroke and sudden death. Add to that the tens of thousands of documented cases of psychiatric drug-induced violence. Think psychiatry has nothing to do with you? Think again.
CCHR is a non-profit, non-political, non-religious mental health watchdog. Its mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. CCHR receives reports about abuses in the field of mental health and is especially interested in situations where persons experienced abuse or damage due to a false diagnosis or unwanted and harmful psychiatric treatments, such as psychiatric drugs, electroshock (ECT) and electronic or magnetic brain stimulation (TMS). CCHR is often able to assist with filing complaints, and can work with a persons attorney to further investigate the case. To contact CCHR Nashville for more information, visit cchrnashville.org.
