About MAPS

The 501(c)(3) non-profit Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) is a global leader in psychedelic research. Since 1986, MAPS has been on a mission to create safe and legal opportunities to experience the benefits of psychedelics in medicine and society.

MAPS has completed the first of two phase 3 clinical trials utilizing MDMA-Assisted Therapy to treat PTSD. The results of this study can be found in this recent article published by the peer reviewed journal Nature Medicine [link to article – if not available- link to NYT].

Health Equity

The Health Equity Program is part of MAPS’ efforts to catalyze equitable access to healing for all those who suffer from trauma. The Health Equity program creates treatment access and training opportunities for those historically marginalized by the mental health field and society at large.

Our goal is to ensure that those who currently have the least access to quality care are amongst the first to gain access to this new treatment modality once it becomes available. Through providing scholarships to trainings, we can focus on developing an MDMA therapist network that reflects the racial demographics of the countries where MDMA is a medicine, ensuring that patients receive competent care. Through subsidizing the cost of treatments, we can prioritize providing care to those who might not be able to afford it through our patient access program.
