Beyond Stigma: The Fundamentals of Psychedelic Medicine R2,150

Psychedelic-assisted therapy has the potential to revolutionize mental healthcare. We believe the greatest barriers to this revolution are stigma and misinformation. We also believe that education is the most powerful tool to combat those barriers.

In service to this mission, Psytech in proud partnership with Medical Marijuana 411 have collated the highly compelling evidence-based data emerging from psychedelic science to create this comprehensive course.

This course is for anyone interested in the compelling science behind psychedelic-assisted therapy including but not limited to medical and health professionals, advocates, patients, and their loved ones.

There are nine modules in the course. Each module contains slide lessons that you can read at any time that is convenient for you. Plus, there is an additional resource section in each module for further reading and review, including video interviews and testimonials from researchers, medical experts, and patients. You will also find endnote citations linking to peer-reviewed studies and relevant articles.

The duration of this course is approx.
