Advocacy Work

It’s time to get serious about mental health. 

In the face of a global mental health epidemic, there is no time to waste on politics, stigma, greed, or ignorance.

It’s time for us to get real about what does (and doesn’t) work, to renegotiate the fields of psychiatry and healthcare, and to roll back laws rooted in racism and misinformation. 

The Problem: 


Depression is the number one cause of disability worldwide. (source) 

17 years

The average number of years it takes for scientific evidence to reach the practice of the average healthcare provider. (source)


Members of the United States military are 4 times more likely to die from suicide than from war operations (source)  

The Solution: 


A meta-analysis of 19 studies found that 79% of patients showed clinical improvement from psychedelic treatment (Rucker et al, 2016).


Of the study participants who received MDMA-assisted therapy for PTSD, 67% no longer qualified for a diagnosis of PTSD post treatment.


Of those who used psilocybin to help them quit smoking, 86.7% rated their psilocybin experience as one of the most personally meaningful and spiritually significant experiences of their lives.

It’s time that people have to access both age-old and cutting-edge therapies.

The first step to change is education. Once people (and politicians) understand what psychedelics are (and aren’t), they tend to agree that it’s time to drop the stigma around their use.
