Psychedelics is a term used to refer to a highly specific group of psychoactive substances that induce expanded states of consciousness and can have a significant long-term impact on the experiencing of emotions and psychological functioning. These substances act as non-specific amplifiers of psychological processes and thus can be useful in the therapeutic process with respect to various types of mental illness.
Psyon is committed to helping improve society’s awareness of psychedelics in cooperation with the Czech Psychedelic Society (CZEPS) and the Foundation for Psychedelic Science (PSYRES). Psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy (PAP) is an innovative approach to mental healthcare and the evidence of its effectiveness is continuing to grow. Moreover, one of its types – ketamine-assisted psychotherapy (KAP) – has already been well-established as an effective therapeutic modality. Psyon is a pioneering project in the field of PAP in the Czech Republic and even in the European context.
