Re-Imagining Substance Abuse, Addiction, and Mental Health Disorders with Psychedelic Therapies

June 9 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm

The mental health epidemic, including substance use disorders and addictions, is a global issue. The crises began long before the COVID-19 pandemic, but two years of loss, stress, isolation, and treatment disruption has only exacerbated the number of people struggling with their mental health. Innovations in the range of medicines currently used in conjunction with psychotherapy have had little to no progress over the last two decades. The use of psychedelic therapy has changed this paradigm. With increased preclinical research and clinical trials illustrating the beneficial effects of  first-generation psychedelics, a wave of second-generation therapeutics are now emerging. This event will highlight progress in both areas of translational research and provide a panel discussion on the trials and tribulations of developing these therapies for commercialization.
