Sign Petition E-1210 for Funding Psychedelic Research

Psychedelic-assisted therapies have shown clear promise as breakthrough interventions for treatment-resistant post-traumatic stress disorder, treatment-resistant major depressive disorder, end-of-life anxiety in terminally ill cancer patients, and various substance addiction disorders (ranging from nicotine, to alcohol, to opioids).

We are asking the Minister of Health to consider the future benefits and reduced harm if she funds research on psychedelic therapies in hospitals and universities.

Please sign this petition to advance the state of mental health research and make Canada once again, a world leader in psychiatric treatment.

Sign the petition here in English or in French.

Documentary "Psychedelic Soldiers"

The documentary focuses on two American veterans who underwent the MDMA-Assisted Therapy pilot study in Boulder, Colorado to combat their PTSD. More Veterans in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom have died from PTSD related suicide than actual combat. Psychedelic Soldiers explores how we can overcome this horrible truth and begin to truly help the brave men and women who put their lives on the line for our safety and well-being.
