Recording: Featured Session: Psychedelics for Therapeutics and Well-being, Mar 15, 2022

Modern research on psychedelics is turning the “turn-on, tune-in, and drop-out” culture of the 1960’s upside down. What was once considered a recreational activity is now an evidence-based treatment for psychiatric disease. But how can psychedelics be widely used to alleviate human suffering through clinician-guided treatment of illnesses such as depression, PTSD, and addiction? Do mystical-type and insightful-type experiences associated with these substances improve overall well-being in patients and in healthy individuals? How can investors make psychedelic medicine accessible by financing academic research and for-profit companies and clinics? What is next for the 21st century renaissance of psychedelic medicine as it becomes an established treatment and wellness aid? Learn more in this panel discussion organized by the New York Academy of Sciences for SXSW 2022.
