Episode 15. PSYCHEDELICS: THE FUTURE OF MENTAL HEALTH TREATMENT
We might think of psychedelics as the inspiration behind Flower power or Steve Jobs' visionary insights, but we would never guess that it would be the promise of new treatments for mental health. In this episode, we talk to Dr. Paul Seli, a cognitive psychologist from Duke University, about the new efforts to understand how psychedelics like psilocybin and LSD can improve depression, anxiety, PTSD and addiction. We also discuss personal experiences and caveats for taking these drugs.
