Education Session | Psilocybin-Assisted Psychotherapy: A Promising Approach for Cancer Support
Discover the transformative potential of psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy in supporting patients experiencing end-of-life anxiety & other mental health conditions. We will explore the research behind psilocybin, its therapeutic benefits, and the role of TheraPsil in advocating for legal access to this therapy in Canada. This presentation will provide firsthand insights into the positive impact of psilocybin therapy, how to get involved & how to navigate the process to determine if psilocybin therapy is an option for you.
Presenter: John Gilchrist, TheraPsil
John Gilchrist is the Communications Manager at TheraPsil, a nonprofit organization advocating for medical psilocybin regulations in Canada. John is an ardent supporter of drug policy reform and believes the growing acceptance of psychedelics marks a paradigm shift in the treatment of mental health. John was aware of the healing powers of psilocybin and other psychedelics but was truly blown away by a personal story from a patient in 2021. Since then, John has been focused on doing whatever possible to support the legalization of psychedelic therapy and to help change public perception towards it. He is honoured and privileged to support TheraPsil’s patients alongside such a professional and dedicated team.
