Are psychedelics good for depression?

Many apologies - due to unforeseen circumstances, this event has been cancelled and will be re-scheduled.

Growing evidence is showing that psychedelics can improve mental health and change personality, and even political perspective in an enduring way. They are reinventing psychiatry and Dr Robin Carhart-Harris is at the forefront of this charge. In this fascinating talk, he will explain why psychedelics might be useful for depression and other mental disorders and how they might work in the brain.

“Are we set to see legal psychedelic research clinics in the UK?” Yes and within 5 years. Come to this talk and be ready for the future.

Dr Robin Carhart-Harris is Head of the Psychedelic Research Group at Imperial College London, where he has designed a number of pioneering brain imaging studies with psychedelic drugs such as psilocybin (magic mushrooms), LSD, MDMA (ecstasy) and DMT (ayahuasca), plus a clinical trial of psilocybin for treatment resistant depression. In 2018 he Co-Founded a new psychedelic research charity Global Psychedelic Research (globalpsychedelicresearch.org) to raise funds for research on naturally occurring (classic) psychedelic compounds.
