Event details

York Psychedelics Society event

This short documentary explores the current status of psychedelics as medicine through army veteran Guy Murray’s journey to healing and how an underground LSD therapy session rescued him from his PTSD and sent him on his way to becoming part of the psychedelic movement.

Right now, 1 in 5 people suffer with anxiety, depression or trauma in the UK. However, limited therapy treatments and resources leave some individuals seeking underground therapy treatments. The UK is now at the forefront of psychedelic-assisted therapy trials with doctors and advocates continually pushing for more research to help rethink treatments and question why we aren’t using psychedelics in psychotherapy.

Following the film, there will be a panel Q&A with director Dan Laughton, and Guy, Keith Abraham and Dr Grace Blest-Hopley from Heroic Hearts UK, a non-profit organisation connecting veterans with trauma to psychedelic treatments.
