Will Psychedelics Help People Living With Depression?

Many of us think about magic mushrooms when we hear the word  psilocyben.  It is the psychedelic in “shrooms” that creates the high or “trip”, says Dr. Ishrat Husain at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health. Dr. Husain and his team are researching the effectiveness of psilocyben to treat people with depression who have not responded to other medication.  

Dr. Husain took part in a world-wide study just published in The New England Journal of Medicine that found that psilocyben may be a viable answser.
