Mental health watchdog Citizens Commission on Human Rights is gearing up for a series of events to educate people on their rights, and ensure protection from mental health abuse.
Psychotropic drugs are increasingly being exposed as chemical toxins with the power to kill, according to CCHR.org. Psychiatrists claim their drugs save lives, but according to their own studies, psychotropic drugs can double the risk of suicide. And long-term use has been proven to create a lifetime of physical and mental damage, a fact ignored by psychiatrists.
Common and well-documented side effects of psychiatric drugs include mania, psychosis, hallucinations, depersonalization, suicidal ideation, heart attack, stroke and sudden death. Not only that, but the US Food and Drug Administration admits that probably one to ten percent of all the adverse drug effects are actually reported by patients or physicians.
Because of these facts and more, the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) Nashville Chapter is gearing up for a series of events to help educate people, especially parents, on their rights. They are going to conferences, festivals, fairs, and right to the streets to bring their resources to people who may not otherwise learn about this topic, and they are encouraging victims of abuse to come forward and tell their stories.
CCHR is a non-profit, non-political, non-religious mental health industry watchdog whose mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health. It works to ensure patient and consumer protections are enacted and upheld as there is rampant abuse in the field of mental health. In this role, CCHR has helped to enact more than 150 laws protecting individuals from abusive or coercive mental health practices since it was formed over 48 years ago.
