Mental health watchdog Citizens Commission on Human Rights will be holding a lunch and learn to help educate the community in honor of Mental Health Day in October.
The Nashville Chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights has just announced that it will be holding a lunch and learn to help educate the community on the rights of children and their parents related to mental health in honor of World Mental Health Day in October.
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 only 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 wants to help educate people, especially parents, on their rights. According to a statement, the lunch and learn will bring in experts on health and wellness who will provide positive alternatives to psychiatric treatment. People attending will also be able to learn their mental health rights. The lunch and learn is scheduled for October 11, 2016 and will be held in the community hall of the Nashville Church of Scientology, 1130 8th Ave South.
