Help Fund Research for the Treatment of Major #Depression with #Psilocybin

I’m ecstatic to see that this important research is being undertaken! That it’s crowdfunded is cool, although I lament this method of unfortunately necessary funding. This is potentially groundbreaking research, shouldn’t there be a better way? Until then, this is happening…

A recent but still unpublished study at Johns Hopkins demonstrated rapid, substantial, and sustained (lasting up to six months) antidepressant and anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) effects of a single dose of psilocybin in psychologically-distressed patients with life-threatening cancer diagnoses.
This is incredibly exciting. What if we could decrease or avoid altogether the known side-effects (and frequency of consumption) of current antidepressant drugs like SSRIs?
