Traumatic events can underpin many kinds of mental health issues. Exploring, naming, and finding healing from trauma are crucial parts of mental health treatment for many people. New research suggests that psychedelics – a class of hallucinogenic drugs whose main effect is to trigger non-ordinary states of consciousness – may offer new ways of approaching this process. Join us for a conversation about trauma and the brain, how and why psychedelics are being used in trauma treatment, and the potential risks and benefits to keep in mind if you or your loved ones are interested in these treatments.
