LOS ANGELES, Sept. 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Every 40 seconds, someone in the world dies of suicide and, for every suicide that results in death, there are as many as 40 unsuccessful attempts. Today is World Suicide Prevention Day and Psychable, the #1 most trusted and comprehensive online community dedicated to connecting those interested in legally exploring psychedelic-assisted therapy with practitioners in the space, is doing its part to advance the conversation surrounding the use of psychedelics as medicine to treat depression.
Psychedelic-assisted therapy is the use of psychedelics for healing purposes, often taking the form of a psychedelic being administered under the supervision of a therapist. In recent years, ketamine and the innovation of its use for treating different forms of depression has become increasingly more interesting as it is evident that it can provide rapid relief to persons with treatment-resistant depression. The treatment is now offered in therapeutic settings via a variety of administration routes, including infusion, intramuscular injection, intranasally, by mouth, and even sublingually.
Recent studies have shown psychedelic-assisted therapy can have long-lasting, fast-acting, and impactful results when it comes to treating those suffering with depression, trauma and addiction. When administered under the supervision of or with the aftercare of a therapist, evidence shows that substances such as ketamine, MDMA, and psilocybin are successful at reducing fear and defensiveness, enhancing introspection and breaking traumatic thought patterns to provide rapid and lasting relief.
Psychable is committed to connecting those interested in legally exploring psychedelic-assisted therapy as a treatment for depression with practitioners in the space. Candidates looking for treatment and practitioners will find support for every stage of the psychedelic journey through the Psychable community at www.Psychable.com.
