After decades of stalled progress, a new wave of clinical research involving psychedelic compounds shows promising results for treating depression, addiction, PTSD, and other mental health conditions.

Mindspace is committed to exploring the potential of this exciting new field and preparing for the eventual advent of wider-access psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy, including:

  • supporting research efforts into the therapeutic potential of ketamine, psilocybin, and MDMA
  • offering integration support for psychedelic experiences as part of our psychology clinic offering
  • contributing to continuing education efforts to help train new therapists in this unique modality
  • facilitating dialogue between the clinical mindfulness and psychedelic communities

Psychedelics 101 & 102 for Clinicians is 2-day training offered by psychologists Ingmar Gorman and Elizabeth Nielson is designed for clinicians and healthcare providers who want to learn more about current psychedelic research and clinical practice, including how to work with patients who have a history of psychedelic use or have expressed an interest in using psychedelics. This is the first time this program has been offered in Canada.
