Nashville, TN, October 19, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- The Nashville chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) held a "lunch and learn" to educate people on living a stress-free life without harmful mind-altering drugs. The seminar was held Oct. 10 in honor of World Mental Health Day.
Dr. David Morris of Magnolia Medical Center gave a presentation titled 5 Tips for a Stress-Free Life. It covered five simple ways anyone can be free of stress:
1) Distancing oneself from negative people
2) A good diet, free of sugar, carbohydrates and dairy
3) Breaking up with social media and the news
4) Getting proper sleep at night
5) Having a good group of friends, people you can go to for help any time
Dr. Morris pointed out that the psychotropic drugs prescribed for mental health disorders have very dangerous side effects, so whatever people can do to avoid stress without seeking medications is very well worth the effort.
"We are proud to host this program to educate our community on these simple actions people can take to lead a better life," said Rev. Brian Fesler, pastor of the Nashville Scientology Church. "We want to thank Dr. Morris for sharing this vital information." He also invited those attending to learn the truth about psychotropic drugs by touring the Citizens Commission on Human Rights displays in the Church’s Public Information Center.
Citizens Commission on Human Rights is a nonprofit mental health watchdog, responsible for helping to enact more than 180 laws protecting individuals from abusive or coercive practices. CCHR has long fought to restore basic inalienable human rights to the field of mental health, including but not limited to full informed consent regarding the medical legitimacy of psychiatric diagnosis, the risks of psychiatric treatments, the right to all available medical alternatives and the right to refuse any treatment considered harmful.
CCHR was co-founded in 1969 by the Church of Scientology and professor of psychiatry Dr. Thomas Szasz.
Alerted to the brutality of psychiatric treatment by author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard who wrote extensively about the abuses of psychiatric patients, CCHR today stands as a powerful voice of reason for those abused and continues its advocacy for reforms.
