Are you interested in mushrooms for depression? Psilocybin, the psychoactive ingredient in psychedelic mushrooms, is projected to be legal in the next five years as a prescription medication, alongside therapy, for major depressive disorder and treatment-resistant depression. How might a person who has depression safely embark on this journey? What are the chances it will work? What do we know about potential side effects, risks, and/ or long-term benefits? And what considerations might you need to take into account, such as weaning off of SSRIs, properly preparing for the session or making sure you have the tools to integrate the session afterwards? We discuss all this and more with Dr. Rosalind Watts, former Clinical Lead of the Psilocybin for Depression trial at Imperial College London.
