EVENT: THE MENTAL HEALTH REVOLUTION
EVENT DATE: May 09, 2017
America's mental health crisis is bad and getting worse. Unless we take serious, significant actions across all levels of society, from our local communities to federal agencies, from friends and family to politicians and business leaders, the light at the end of the tunnel will forever stay distant.
As individuals, there is not a lot we can control; but we can control how we spend our money. We can investigate all the potential ways to treat mental illness. We can take new, unconventional, and unorthodox paths and see where they lead. They may lead nowhere, or they may lead to solutions. Leading the way are distinguished researchers from prestigious institutions, working on the front lines of a mental health revolution:
- Psilocybin treatment for end-of-life distress in patients with life-threatening cancer, led by NYU School of Medicine’s Dr. Stephen Ross
- Psilocybin treatments for addiction, led by NYU School of Medicine’s Dr. Michael Bogenschutz
- MDMA treatment for PTSD patients, led by Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) founder & executive director Dr. Rick Doblin
- Microdosing with LSD for cognitive enhancement, led by Beckley Foundation Founder & Director Amanda Feilding
