ALTRD.TV, the streaming network for progressive culture, released the trailer for its new upcoming series Open Minds: Exploring Psychedelic Medicine, coming in 2023. The series concentrates on the resurgence of psychedelic research for mental health treatments, with leading industry experts from The Chopra Foundation, MAPS, The McKenna Academy of Natural Philosophy, Cybin Inc. (NYSE AMERICAN:CYBN | NEO:CYBN) and others.
Open Minds is a six-part miniseries that explores the topics of consciousness, the experience of using psychedelic treatments, current research and what the future of mental healthcare can look like.
“Open Minds explores many of the questions surrounding psychedelics as a treatment for mental health. We connected with industry leaders, researchers, and people who have used these treatments firsthand to find the answers. This collaboration allowed us to paint a picture of the future of psychedelic therapy while remembering where we’ve come from in the past. When we first started this documentary, we didn’t realize the profound impact this research could have on millions of people around the world in need of new and innovative treatment for their mental health.”Executive Producer Joshua Otten
The documentary features researcher Dennis McKenna, who has conducted interdisciplinary research on the ethnopharmacology of Amazonian traditional medicines for over 40 years, and Dr. Deepak Chopra, professor, author, and founder of The Chopra Foundation, a non-profit entity for research on well-being and humanitarianism. The series also features Doug Drysdale, CEO of Cybin Inc., Bryan Johnson, Founder and CEO of Kernel, Keith Ferrazzi, Founder and Chairman of Ferrazzi Greenlight, Adam Strauss, Comedian and Psychedelic advocate and Cristie Strongman, MDMA Psychotherapist and Trainer at the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) on clinical trials for PTSD with MDMA-assisted psychotherapy.
“Through clinical trials we can now begin to see the impact of psychedelic medicine and the potential to help people who are suffering from mental health disorders such as PTSD,” said Christie Strongman, who has firsthand experience working with patients in MAPS groundbreaking research. “It’s important to raise awareness for alternative healing modalities that have massive potential to shift our understanding of modern medicine and treatment of mental illness.”
“The world is changing so fast now, and psychedelics may become necessary to make sense of it all. We were able to learn from these bold pioneers of science and witness what we may be stepping into next,” said Robert Schober, Director of Open Minds.
