As previously noted, there are 45 million Americans with a mental illness. In recent years, medical professionals have turned to natural medicine for an answer - and they might have found it in psilocybin, the psychoactive substance found in magic mushrooms. Designated as "breakthrough therapy" by the FDA, psilocybin therapy has the potential to reinvent the paradigm for treating psychiatric disorders like addiction, PTSD and depression. The panel discussion allows individuals to listen to experts in all things mushroom and psychiatry examine the potential of psilocybin mushrooms in revolutionizing mental healthcare. They discuss ongoing clinical trials, recent medical discoveries and how the fungi may be part of the solution to America's mental health crisis.
