Community Standards

Do no harm.

Welcome to Psychable’s Community Center, a global community of people who are passionate about the therapeutic benefits of psychedelics. We invite you to share knowledge, practical advice, and personal stories with other like-minded people who are creating a world where psychedelic medicine can be safely accessible to all. 

Psychable Community Managers help ensure the community forum is a welcoming and inclusive place for all members. If you see something that goes against these guidelines, please report it. We review flagged content and take appropriate action as needed.

To ensure that community discourse is uplifting and supportive, we have provided these guidelines to help minimize the harm that can occur, whether intentionally or unintentionally, in online spaces.

General Guidelines

1. Be kind, respectful, and encouraging of each other, even if you have differing points of view.

2. Engage in nonviolent, trauma-informed communication, since many people are here to seek healing.

3. Be clear in your communication and post full answers, which will make it easier for others to engage with you.

4. Follow the rules of Psychable’s Content Policy and do not post any advertisements to solicit for or sell illegal substances, do not endorse any illegal activities, and/or reveal personal information like phone numbers to protect the privacy of yourself or others. Please be aware that content on the public forum is accessible to anyone.

5. Every member should feel welcome. Please be respectful and inclusive of other members in accordance with Psychable’s Nondiscrimination Policy.

Nondiscrimination Policy

Our company is explicitly anti-racist and committed to long-term advocacy, proactive inclusion, and diversity. We recognize the violence and harm that the drug war has explicitly and intentionally inflicted upon communities of color. We validate the need for restorative measures, such as the expungement of criminal records, as substances like cannabis, psilocybin, and MDMA become decriminalized and legalized for medical use. We recognize the continuation of systemic privileges and inequities that make the psychedelic sector predominantly white and affluent and hope to do our part to make the sector more inclusive, accessible, and diverse. 

We are not perfect and we may make mistakes, but we will absolutely not stand silent nor silence others as we do our part to pursue equity.

Discrimination based on race/ethnicity/nationality, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, economic status, physical and mental ability and status, drug use, and age are not permitted at Psychable. Hate speech, tone policing, and persistent ignorance will not be tolerated in our spaces.

We strive to recognize inequities and amplify voices in the psychedelic community that have been previously suppressed, devalued, or ignored.

We recognize that some naturally occurring psychedelics, such as peyote and ibogaine, are under threat due to habitat destruction and improper and unsustainable overharvesting. We also recognize that indigenous peoples continue to be impacted by colonization, extractive industries, and climate change. We believe that it is imperative to protect and preserve these plants, and also the autonomy of cultures that have stewarded these traditions over time. Psychable values sharing educational information about the safe practice and sustainable use of these medicines.

We are committed to accountability and to owning and addressing our mistakes. We strive to build a community that educates and supports each other, as well as uplift a culture of mutual aid, responsibility, and accountability.

Psychable will not give a platform to practitioners who have a history of abusive practices. We are committed to doing everything we can to discern whether or not a provider is safe to list on our site. Psychable reserves the right to list and remove practitioners as we see fit.

We recognize the prevalence of sexual harassment and abuse in psychedelic spaces as well as in broader social contexts. We believe that this impacts everyone and that everyone is responsible for ending sexual violence. Psychable commits to approaching issues of sexual misconduct through a trauma-informed lens.

Psychable’s forums strive to build systems of equity, reciprocity and support, safe practice, and continued education for seekers of psychedelic therapy as well as practitioners. We believe that each person is the ultimate authority on their own mind and body, that each person has their own inner healing intelligence, and that practitioners are here in service of each person’s unique journey.

Psychable hopes to expand the psychedelic discourse while remaining committed to hosting a community that prioritizes ethics and safety for everyone.
