The Nashville Chapter of Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR Nashville) is planning a benefit concert in May to help those who have been abused in the mental health field.
CCHR is known as an advocate for human rights, especially as relates to patients rights. Per the international CCHR website, cchr.org, 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 is committed to helping people learn their rights, especially as relates to freedom of conscience, says CCHR Nashville Board Member, Brian Fesler. 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 persons attorney to further investigate the case. To contact CCHR Nashville for more information, visit cchrnashville.org.
