Talking points: psychedelics, psychedelic-assisted therapy, men and therapy, the effects during and after taking psychedelics

I’ve been looking forward to releasing the second part of our convo as a way of kicking off what 2023 could be for mental health. Nick is very well-informed, and if you’ve ever been curious about something like psilocybin, or just wanted some clarification on how psychedelics can affect a person and assist with powerful healing, this one is for you.

Part 1 was about the fears and worries people can have around psychedelic experiences, and an overview of how they work and what their potential is.

You can check out part 1 here:
