In this webinar special guest speakers, Kyle Buller and Joe Moore from Psychedelics Today will share their experiences of breaking down the stigma and myths associated with psychedelic and cross-cultural psychedelic taboos and nuances. Dr. Alana Roy will share the current challenges and triumphs working in the field of psychedelic science in Australia and how you can help break down these barriers to ensure Australia has access to psychedelic medicine.
After this screening, a live “bust a myth/you can’t ask that” mental health panel Q and A discussion will occur with Dr. Alana Roy and Renee Harvey. Participants will have the opportunity to challenge assumptions, biases, and culturally constructed beliefs. Furthermore, participants will be given practical tools on how to become educated, ethical, and informed psychedelic advocates to help join the movement in Australia.
About medicinal psychedelic treatments
Psychedelic-assisted treatments offer enormous potential in providing a meaningful alternative to current treatments for mental illness. PTSD is a debilitating condition that affects tens of millions of people worldwide, with many more trauma victims diagnosed with comorbid conditions such as depression, anxiety and eating disorders. In recent clinical trials, MDMA has been shown to produce reliable clinical improvements, restoring patient safety and self-agency even for individuals who have suffered with PTSD for many years, and for whom many treatments have failed.
The wave of clinical psychedelic research and regulatory support is rapidly building, with experts forecasting the availability of psychedelic-assisted treatments in the US and EU within the next 2 to 5 years, subject to positive clinical outcomes in large trials that are currently underway.
