First Responders and PTSD

First responders are there on the worst days or moments of our lives; they are there when we need them most. But, when our worst day becomes a first responder's worst and darkest moment over and over again, who is there for them? These experiences may unconsciously become a first responder's occupation stress injury or PTSD.

Join Dr. Pam Kryskow and 4 first responders: Mia, Carl, Scott and Amy as they discuss how psychedelics initiated and accelerated their road to recovery from the deep-seated occupational stress injury of PTSD.

Join us live on Wednesday, September 22 2021 at 4pm PST and participate in the conversation!

Harm Reduction

As interest in psychedelics has spiked in recent years, many people are referring to this boom as a “psychedelic renaissance”. Although psychedelics may have the potential to be an effective therapy for a variety of ailments, it is in everyone’s best interest to incorporate strategies for safe use, managed use, abstinence, non-judgement, and addressing conditions of use along with the use itself. This is where harm reduction, a set of practical strategies and ideas, comes in.

Join us for an informational webinar focused on understanding harm reduction and how it’s principals may be directly applied to psychedelic practices and therapy today! Our panel of professional nurses are ready to share their passion for harm reduction, why it is vital moving forward, and the current challenges with implementation.

The CPA to introduce new regulatory change to Health Canada

Canada overwhelmingly supports access to new regulations with polling numbers showcasing the need for change including, 78% of Canadians polled support or somewhat support a government that legalized psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy to improve the quality of life for terminally ill patients.

The Canadian Psychedelic Association and other experts from across Canada have been meeting with Members of Parliament, senior government officials, representatives from all parties, and national stakeholders over the past 10 months and encountered unanimous support for access to psilocybin therapy with a palliative diagnosis.

With public support at an all-time high, we are focusing on introducing evidence-informed regulations to officials at Health Canada. We come together with a group of key experts including palliative care professionals, therapists, MDs, non-profit supports, industry, medical and legal experts to communicate, petition, and deliver a regulatory framework that will transform the lives of Canadians who deserve access to medicine that can help them overcome their most debilitating mental anxieties.

Work with us, lend your support and help us create a new path for legal psilocybin-assisted therapy in Canada. #canadasupports
