This Funzing Experience:
Join us for the launch of the next stage of the Psychedelic Society's Psychedelics for Mental Health campaign, that demands the rescheduling of psilocybin. Featuring:

► Dr. James Rucker, Head of Psychedelic Research at King’s College London
► Dr. Robin Carhart-Harris, Head of Psychedelic Research at Imperial College London
► Dr. Rosalind Watts, Clinical Psychologist at Imperial College London and co-host of the Psychedelic Integration Discussion Group

Respected studies like the ones at King’s College London and Imperial College London suggest that psilocybin could revolutionise the treatment of depression & anxiety.

Unfortunately, psilocybin is currently classified as a Schedule 1 substance by the UK government. This means it cannot be prescribed by doctors outside of licensed studies, and makes conducting research with psilocybin much more time-consuming and expensive relative to other drugs. By reclassifying psilocybin to Schedule 2, research would become easier and cheaper, so that people can benefit from this treatment sooner.

At this event, we'll screen a première of our brand new campaign animation (voiced by James Rucker) before moving on to a discussion between our three special guests and the Psychedelic Society's co-director Stephen Reid.
