Mycelium is a life preserver, not only for our species, but for so many of the species that inhabit our Earth.
We’re asking you to start this revolution in the ecology of consciousness. Please help us. We can save this planet with your help and the help of Mycelium.
There are currently no medications that have proven effective in dealing with the massive increase in addiction, depression, trauma and suicide.
Psychedelic medicines are showing extraordinary results in clinical trials, and are on the fast track to becoming one of the most transformative tools of our time.
In a world where people feel so deeply disconnected, the use of medications to further detach them may work to dampen the emotions that are experienced, but often provide little relief and no profound insights into the internal experience of life. What science has shown is that psilocybin works to calm the region of the brain called the Default Mode Network and stimulates connections between new or under-utilised regions of the brain.
This stunning film by award-winning director Louie Schwartzberg touches on the ground-breaking work being done at Johns Hopkins, UCLA, New York University and other places. It will open a door to a meaningful and important conversation and exploration into the potential mushrooms offer.
The film also covers topics including innovation, health, wellness and medicine, the environment and biodiversity, foraging, food and cooking, consciousness and spirituality, culture, history and the arts.
How can you help? Watch the film! Bring along friends to watch the film together. Discuss the subject matter with others in your communities, and ask them to do the same.
“Schwartzberg’s film quickly proves to be one of the year’s most mind-blowing, soul-cleansing and yes, immensely entertaining triumphs.”

More about Mind Medicine Australia and Medicinal Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy
Mind Medicine Australia is Australia’s leading not-for-profit organisation working on the use of medicinal psilocybin and MDMA-assisted therapies to treat a range of mental illnesses. Mind Medicine Australia exists to help alleviate the suffering caused by our accelerating mental illness epidemic in Australia, through expanding the treatment options available to medical practitioners and their patients.
Unlike current treatments such as anti-depressants, which only manage the illness and can have nasty side effects, psilocybin and MDMA assisted therapies have been scientifically proven to be a safe and effective cure for anxiety, depression, end-of-life stress, addictions and PTSD after just a short treatment program. These medicines are also currently being researched for dementia, eating disorders, OCD and a number of other conditions. Both medicines have been granted Breakthrough Therapy Status by the FDA in the USA to fast-track their approval. This designation is only given to medicines which may prove to be vastly superior to existing treatments.
At Mind Medicine Australia we are dedicated to helping the now global movement to spread this awareness and ensure these medicines are available via the medical system. Please watch and share our 2 minute animation to find out why psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy needs to be available to those who are suffering:
Can’t attend? You can still support MMA and ensure these treatments are available and accessible to those who are suffering!
By donating to Mind Medicine Australia, you will be helping accelerate the availability and best practice of psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy in Australia. Mind Medicine Australia is a small organisation doing big things – we need your support.
