The Advocate: Hope Found in Magic Mushrooms and MDMA

Summary: The Advocate explores the expansion of the psychedelic research movement that is growing in Australia due in part to the positive results from psychedelic clinical trials happening in the U.S. “In the U.S. more than 100 studies have looked at the effectiveness of psychedelics, including MDMA for PTSD and magic mushrooms for depression,” explains The Advocate. “In a first for Australia, a research trial for the latter is underway at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Melbourne which replicates U.S. research, and will see terminally ill cancer patients receive synthetic psilocybin to reduce depression and anxiety related to death.”
