The Solo Talk: The future of psychedelic research and therapy
The fight for the right to research
For a long time, our treatments for mental health haven’t seen dramatic improvements in outcomes. Psychedelics have the potential to offer up a new treatment path but it is still often an uphill struggle to pass ethics approval and raise funding.
David Nutt has spent his lifetime fighting for the right to research psychedelics and has often highlighted uncomfortable truths about our evidence-lacking prohibition of these potentially lifesaving medicines.
Join Professor David Nutt as he explores the current state of the field and how these substances could revolutionise the way we treat mental health.
