3 October 2021 – for immediate release Expert Review Findings Support the Therapeutic Use of Medicinal Psychedelics in Treating Mental Health Crisis

The findings of an expert panel reviewing the use of psychedelics in treating Australia’s mental health crisis, give strong support to such treatments being introduced at this stage on a case-by-case basis, under the supervision of the patient’s doctors and trained therapists.The Review findings reinforce the safety in using both MDMA and psilocybin psychedelics for strictly medicinal purposes.

Most importantly, the Review found that these medicinal psychedelic medicines have a “strong effect size” – that is, they actually help people get better from depression, posttraumatic stress disorder, addictions, end-of-life stress and other mental illnesses. The Review Panel emphasised the importance of the medicines being administered in closely
supervised settings and with intensive professional (therapists) support.

The Review follows Mind Medicine Australia’s (MMA’s) application to Australia’s Medicines Authority, the TGA, to allow these medicinal psychedelics to be used for medical purposes, whilst maintaining the prohibition on the use of psychedelics for recreational purposes. This step requires these medicinal therapies to be rescheduled as “controlled medicines” under the Poisons Standard.
