Citizens Commission on Human Rights to Hold Workshop on Overcoming Trauma

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights of Nashville (CCHR Nashville) will hold a workshop at the end of January about overcoming past trauma.

Nashville, TN, January 26, 2019 --( The Nashville Chapter of Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR Nashville) will have a special workshop in late January to confront a serious topic: overcoming past trauma.

CCHR is known as an advocate for human rights, especially as relates to patients’ rights in the field of mental health. Per the international CCHR website,, “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.”

During this workshop, attendees will hear from experts on the best ways to deal with past trauma, and how to overcome this through natural health tips and exercises.

“CCHR is committed to helping people learn their rights, and this includes ways to handle trauma without mind altering drugs,” says CCHR Volunteer, Julie Brinker.

CCHR Nashville regularly hosts events and meetings with local leaders who give insight into patients’ rights, parents’ rights and more.

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 person’s attorney to further investigate the case. To contact CCHR Nashville for more information, visit
