Shondaland: Is Psychedelic-Aided Therapy a Mental Health Game Changer?

Summary: Journalist Sandy Cohen of Shondaland openly explores the potential benefits of combining therapy with psychedelics.

“In recent years, using psychedelic drugs to support mental health has become a hot topic in the media and among medical professionals. A number of recent documentaries, including Michael Pollan’s recently released Netflix series How to Change Your Mind, explore the mental health benefits of psychedelics,” writes Cohen.

“It’s not only this mind-opening effect that makes psychedelics so potentially powerful therapeutically, but research shows [psychedelics] stimulate nerve growth and neural connections, making it easier for the brain to escape old patterns and form new ones.”
