CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, July 6, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Florida chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a mental health watchdog organization, is hosting a complimentary virtual seminar covering alternative and safe solutions to psychotropic drugs on July 31st. The featured presenter for the seminar is registered pharmacist, Pamela Seefeld.A graduate of the University of Florida College of Pharmacy, Seefeld, has been practicing and consulting on pharmacology for more than 25 years. Her specialty centers around pharmacognosy, the study and use of botanical resources and natural supplements to treat illnesses, physical and mental.
“Giving people access to information on alternative solutions to psychiatric drugs, which come with a myriad of dangerous side effects, is important,” stated the president of CCHR in Florida, Diane Stein. “Millions of Americans are prescribed these drugs and, among the young, 1 in 3 misuse them.” 
More than 6.1 million U.S. children are taking psychotropic medications with documented adverse health effects, according to data from the IQVia Total Patient Tracker Database for the year 2020.  This includes 85,000 infants and 138,000 toddlers prescribed and taking anti-anxiety, anti-depressant, and ADHD drugs. Studies also show that 55% -77% of teenagers who developed suicidal behavior did so directly after being treated with psychiatric medication .
During the online event, Ms. Seefeld will discuss alternative solutions for mental health and will cover “black box” warnings for psychiatric drugs. A black box warning is the highest level of warning issued by the FDA for drugs and medical devices on the market. These warnings exist to alert the public and health care practitioners to serious side effects, such as injury or death. 
According to a Denver Post article by holistic health pioneer Dr. Mercola, drug companies have paid billions of dollars in fines for illegally marketing psychiatric drugs to children. Dr. Mercola explains that often behavior problems in children are very frequently related to improper diet, emotional upset, and exposure to toxins, yet no pharmaceutical drug commercial will ever mention those lifestyle changes .
