Psilocybin and other classic psychedelics show promise in the treatment of a range of mental health conditions and have garnered significant interest from the media and lay public. In this presentation, Dr. Hendricks will review the history of classic psychedelics, including a focus on the first wave of classic psychedelic research and why this wave came to an abrupt end. He will then review findings from the contemporary, second wave of classic psychedelic research, and finally, discuss the future of classic psychedelics as approved medications, with a focus on avoiding hype cycles and disillusionment that have accompanied a range of medications in the past.
