Training Overview Description

A new frontier in treating mental health conditions, psychedelic therapy has brought about lasting change for patients and people around the world. Field Trip Health has been facilitating psychedelic-assisted therapy since March 2020 in our Health Centres across North America – and we’re pleased to publish a whitepaper report outlining the importance of this medicine and preliminary results from the protocol.

Event-specific Details

Dr. Michael Verbora, MBA MD (Field Trip Medical Director, Toronto) and Dr. Ben Medrano, MD (Field Trip Medical Director, New York) will discuss the paper, present the researched-based evidence of the efficacy of psychedelic therapies, and outline the ongoing clinical work that Field Trip Health is facilitating, using ketamine-assisted therapy to treat treatment-resistant mental health conditions with lasting success. This session will deliver useful & thought-provoking information catered to care providers who wish to learn more about the resurgence of psychedelic medicine.

This webinar will:

  • Educate and raise awareness regarding the current options in ketamine-assisted psychotherapy
  • Destigmatize the use of psychedelic drugs to treat treatment-resistant mental health conditions
  • Create an open forum for the comprehensive white paper report that Field Trip Health has published
