Mind Medicine Australia is Australia’s leading not-for-profit organisation working on the use of medicinal psilocybin and MDMA-assisted therapies to treat a range of mental illnesses. Mind Medicine Australia exists to help alleviate the suffering caused by our accelerating mental illness epidemic in Australia, through expanding the treatment options available to medical practitioners and their patients.
Unlike current treatments such as anti-depressants, which only manage the illness and can have nasty side effects, psilocybin and MDMA assisted therapies have been scientifically proven to be a safe and effective cure for anxiety, depression, end-of-life stress, addictions and PTSD after just a short treatment program. These medicines are also currently being researched for dementia, eating disorders, OCD and a number of other conditions.
Research from over 160 trials indicates that the medicines are safe and non-addictive when administered within a medically-controlled environment, and have been leading to remissions in 60-80% of patients after just 2-3 medicinal sessions in combination with psychotherapy. There have been no serious adverse events in thousands of patients.
At Mind Medicine Australia we are dedicated to helping the now global movement to spread this awareness and ensure these medicines are available via the medical system.
In collaboration with Mind Medicine Institute, we have created the first-ever Certificate in Psychedelic Therapies in the Southern Hemisphere. Our world class faculty is training psychiatrists, GPs, physicians, counsellors, nurses, psychologists, psychotherapists, social workers, occupational therapists and others.
We also offer a range of other educational opportunities including our FREE global webinar series with international speakers such as Dr Gabor Maté (Canada) and Professor David Nutt (UK), as well as our short online course about the Fundamentals of Psychedelic-Assisted Therapies.
We have 30+ local chapter meet-up groups all over Australia and New Zealand, working together to create community and to host open conversations about psychedelic science – including our Byron Bay chapter for the Northern Rivers region. We also have a dedicated Psychological Support Service for Australians who are seeking support for their mental health including harm minimisation and integration.
The recent pandemic has exacerbated Australia’s mental health epidemic and these treatments have the potential to cure millions of people who are suffering.
“The most engaging, interesting and enjoyable course I have attended.”
