Better Mental Health
for More People

Scroll-Down-white

We are at a crisis point
in mental health provision.

Mental health and addiction (including alcohol), is the 5th leading cause of illness globally, affecting 20% of the world’s population.

Unlike other medical disciplines, psychiatry focuses on maintenance rather than cure, and symptom suppression rather than addressing the root causes of these illnesses.

The exception is Psychedelics and Psychedelic-Assisted Psychotherapy which have the potential to radically change mental health services and deliver significantly better patient outcomes.
