Mental health watchdog Citizens Commission on Human Rights held a lunch and learn to educate the community in honor of World Mental Health Day in October.
The Nashville Chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights was proud to have a special workshop to help parents learn how to raise healthy children in honor of World Mental Health Day. Working with a special chiropractor who is also a Maximized Living professional, the organization was able to bring awareness to several parents on children’s mental and physical health needs.
CCHR is determined to help educate people, especially parents, on their rights. “It’s important to us that parents know the dangers of psychiatric drugs, as well as the other options available to them so that their children lead happy and healthy lives,” says Meg Epstein, Executive Director of the Nashville CCHR Chapter.
The guest chiropractor laid out what to do if a child is experiencing a variety of health issues, and what parents can do to help their children be at a more optimum health level. She discussed societal norms where people are given a pill, and how that merely masks the problem without fixing it. Then she gave the five steps to maximize health, and how to really help children lead healthy lives.
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 five decades ago.
