PACFA is pleased to announce an exciting new partnership with Mind Medicine Australia for their inaugural Summit on Psychedelic Medicines for Mental Health, being held in Melbourne on 19 & 20 November, 2021.
Mind Medicine Australia is a registered charity, focused on the clinical application of psychedelic medicines to treat mental illness in Australia. In the past decade, there have been more than 120 psychedelic medicine trials worldwide, focusing on depression, anxiety, addiction, and PTSD. Up-to 80% of patients in these trials have gone into remission after just 2-3 small medicinal doses of MDMA or psilocybin, in tandem with psychotherapy. More recently, trials for psychedelic assisted psychotherapy for dementia and anorexia patients have yielded similar results (Mind Medicine Australia).
PACFA is excited to be partnered with Mind Medicine Australia for their inaugural summit, which will feature a mixture of international and national keynotes, master classes, hot spots, panel conversations, and a gala dinner Q & A. The summit will explore a variety of topics, including how psychedelic medicines work for a range of conditions, the implications for patients, ethical and legal considerations, and how the introduction of medicine-assisted psychotherapy will impact the Australian healthcare system.
In addition to the Summit, PACFA Members are also invited to the Introductory Workshop on Psychedelic Therapies for therapists and health professionals, held in Melbourne on 17 & 18 November, just before the Summit.
