Psilocybin versus SSRIs? A cure for depression [ONLINE]

March 24 @ 1:00 am - 2:30 am

by Mind Medicine Australia

//

An interesting question is how psychedelics differ from conventional antidepressants that also work on the serotonin system. A trial currently underway at Imperial College will investigate a 6-week escitalopram treatment arm versus two psilocybin therapy sessions for treatment of depression. Robin Carhart-Harris will report on the results of this exciting trial during this webinar and answer questions.

Following the presentation there will be a Q & A panel with Dr Robin Carhart-Harris and Tania de Jong AM. This will be an opportunity to engage in a discussion about psychedelic-assisted psychotherapies for mental illness broadly, and what Mind Medicine Australia and other local organisations are doing here in Australia.
