The Clinical Takeaway: Psychedelics: A New Paradigm for Mental-Health Care

Description

In this episode:
– Are we on the brink of a huge paradigm shift in the way we think about mental health disorders and how we treat our patients?
– Current psychiatry is essentially symptomatic treatment mainly because our understanding of mental illness is still rudimentary and mostly conjectural…. psychedelics involve a completely different approach
– Psychedelic therapy may offer patients access to treatment that will allow them to safely grow through disorder and possibly achieve a genuine cure
