In Recent Studies, Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy Proves to be a Powerful Treatment to Address Mental Health Issues
LOS ANGELES, April 30, 2021 — May is Mental Health Awareness Month, a dedicated time to raise awareness of those living with mental or behavioral health struggles and the stigma that still exists surrounding mental health issues. Nearly 1 in 5 Americans have a mental health condition. Although cultural conversations surrounding the importance of mental health are at an all-time high, more than half of those diagnosed do not get the treatment or support they need*
Research increasingly shows the efficacy of psychedelic-assisted therapy to treat mental health issues in candidates. With recent decriminalization efforts around psychedelics, and the off-label use of ketamine as a treatment for depression, an increasing number of practitioners across the country are offering psychedelic-assisted therapy as a treatment option for mental health issues.
Psychable, the comprehensive online community for people who are interested in legally exploring or offering psychedelic-assisted therapy, is expanding education around the transformative power of psychedelics in not only treating mental health disorders such as addiction, PTSD and depression, but also helping Americans everywhere prioritize their mental health as part of their overall wellness.
Psychedelic-assisted therapy is the use of psychedelic medicines for healing purposes, often taking the form of a psychedelic medicine being administered under the supervision of a therapist. Recent studies have shown psychedelic-assisted therapy can have long-lasting, fast-acting, and impactful results when it comes to treating those suffering with a myriad of mental health disorders, especially when administered under the supervision of or with the aftercare of a therapist. Additionally, for those simply looking for tools to enhance their holistic mental and emotional wellbeing, psychedelic medicines combined with therapy can provide lasting benefits.
“With the availability of ketamine-assisted therapy in the US, the medical industry is rapidly advancing their research in the area of psychedelic medicine, which is evidenced in the increasing number of in-progress clinical trials. Add in the recent decriminalization efforts in states across the country, Psychable truly believes that the US is poised to usher in what many indigenous and Western-healers around the world have known for generations – that the use of psychedelics as medicine when used as part of an overall mental health treatment plan under the supervision of a licensed practitioner, can provide transformative experiences for a better life,” said Jemie Sae Koo, CEO of Psychable. “Psychable’s mission is to connect those seeking mental wellness options with trusted, legal and safe practitioners in their areas. No matter the knowledge-level around psychedelic-assisted therapy, people are able to find a safe community to learn from each other about options and seek alternative treatments on Psychable.”
