Santa Cruz, CA (Dec 3, 2009) – Green Body and Mind and the Citizens Commission on Human Rights will team up to sponsor the first Green Mental Health Care Day event to be held Sunday, December 13th in Santa Cruz, CA.

This event will highlight alternatives to psychiatric drugs that actually provide superior results in patient outcomes and will expose the dangers of current psychiatric mental health practices, which depend on the widespread prescribing of psychotropic drugs with dangerous side effects ranging from diabetes and cancer to suicide and violence.

The event will include documentaries, expert speakers and the Santa Cruz community’s Green Metal Health providers who will discuss the Green Mental Health approach, which is based on non-toxic, non-addictive and non-invasive healing practices.

The event will disclose the health risks and dangers of existing mental health practices, and will include a call to action for concerned Santa Cruz County residents to join forces and change the mental health system in Santa Cruz County so that patients can have access to non-toxic and non-addictive solutions provided by Santa Cruz practitioners.

Featured speakers for the event include Gwen Olsen, former pharmaceutical sales representative and now RX Reformer and author of “Confessions of an Rx Drug Pusher,” and Genita Petralli, Nutritional Biochemist, Orthomolecular Neurochemistry Rehabilitation Specialist and author of “Green Mental Health Care, How to Get Off and Stay off Psychiatric Drugs.” Ms. Petralli is also the Medical Director of the Shangri La BioSpa & Prescription Addiction Clinic, and President of Green Body and Mind. Other highly esteemed speakers include Lyle Murphy, Medical Director of Alternative to Meds Center; Dr. Duncan McCollum of McCollum Wellness Center; and Dr. Stanley Monteith, author, World in Crisis and Brotherhood of Darkness.

Cost: $10 per person
Seniors, Veterans and those on psychiatric drugs will be admitted free of charge.
