The Washington Post: Who Will Benefit From Psychedelic Medicine?

Summary: The Washington Post Magazine explores the call for inclusion and social justice within the burgeoning world of psychedelic medicine, highlighting MAPS’ efforts to expand racial equity and access, and announcing the MAPS health equity initiative launching this fall to benefit marginalized peoples. The article features interviews with therapists of color who worked on the MAPS-sponsored study of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD with participants of color at the University of Connecticut, and insights from presenters at the Psychedelic Medicine and Cultural Trauma Workshop hosted by MAPS in Kentucky last year. “If you want this [treatment] to be accessible to people of color, you can’t use the same strategies that marginalized them in the first place,” says Jamilah R. George, M.Div.
