Mind Medicine Australia exists to help alleviate the suffering caused by mental illness in Australia through expanding the treatment options available to medical practitioners and their patients. We will establish safe and effective psychedelic-assisted treatments to treat a range of mental illnesses.
Mind Medicine Australia is a registered charity founded by Tania de Jong AM and Peter Hunt AM. We are supporting clinical research and working towards regulatory-approved and evidence-based psychedelic-assisted therapies. We operate as a peak body that connects medical practitioners, consumers, academia, government, industry, regulatory bodies, philanthropists, investors and other stakeholders.
Mind Medicine Australia is focused specifically on the clinical application of medicinal psilocybin and medicinal MDMA for certain mental illnesses. We do not advocate for non-clinical use of psychedelics, MDMA, or any other prohibited substances, nor do we advocate for any changes to the law with respect to non-clinical use. Our focus is wholly clinical.
Indications of success
- These therapies become an integral part of our Mental Health System
- With high remission rates leading to a substantial improvement in our Mental Health Statistics
- And that these therapies are accessible and affordable to all Australians in need
