Parent Episode: Roland Griffiths, Ph.D. on Psilocybin, Psychedelic Therapies & Mystical Experiences

Depression, characterized by profound sadness, fatigue, altered sleep and appetite, and feelings of guilt or low self-worth, is the most common form of mental illness in the world. It is typically treated with cognitive behavioral therapy and pharmaceuticals. Unfortunately, some people do not respond to conventional therapies for depression. Psilocybin is emerging as a potential therapy for treatment-resistant depression, demonstrating efficacy in a recent small study in the UK. In this clip, Dr. Roland Griffiths describes new findings that suggest psilocybin may be useful in managing the symptoms of treatment-resistant depression.
