Psychedelics as Medicine [ONLINE]

September 3 @ 2:30 am - 3:30 am

Join Greens MP Cate Faehrmann for a discussion on the emerging field of psychedelic-assisted therapy.

About this Event

The emerging field of psychedelic-assisted therapy is showing breakthrough results for treatment-resistant mental disorders.

Psilocybin mushrooms, LSD, MDMA and Ketamine are just some of the drugs being used to successfully treat anxiety, depression, PTSD and addiction.

At the same time people are increasingly experiencing anxiety, depression and trauma in the wake of drought, floods, bushfires, COVID-19 and looming economic meltdown, putting even more strain on already struggling mental health services.

Join Greens MPs and drug law reform advocates Cate Faehrmann (NSW) and Minister Shane Rattenbury (ACT) in discussion with Tania de Jong and Peter Hunt of Mind Medicine Australia and the potential for these breakthrough therapies and how they could be the answer to our mental health crisis.

Please note that this talk/conversation will be hosted live online and includes an audience Q&A. Instructions on how to join the conversation will be included in your event confirmation email.
