In the work we do, it's important to acknowledge the considerations of individuals in BIPOC communities that others, like us, do not have to make because of privilege. Psilocybin's introduction to Western/European culture came with an immeasurable price to indigenous Mexican communities, and this price has circled outwards, continuing to this day. We keep this in mind in all of our programming for Psilocybin-Assisted Therapy. Also known as psilocybin therapy and mushroom therapy
The Psilocybin-Assisted Therapy Association (PATA) is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization focused on promoting the advancement of psilocybin-assisted therapy (PAT), a form of psychedelic-assisted therapy also referred to as magic mushroom therapy and psilocybin therapy. Based out of Oregon, we aim to educate and empower the public, licensed therapists, and psychedelic professionals to make the best decision on how to use psilocybin*, a powerful natural substance, to reach consumers' personal mental health goals.
Our organization and programs are based on consumer focused core beliefs. Our Psychedelic Assisted Therapy Resources are focused around the use of psilocybin and can be applied to other psychedelics.
Mental health is important. Whether your goals are to further personal self-growth, overcome anxiety/depression or PTSD, assist with substance abuse recovery or smoking cessation, aid with issues around death and dying, or address disordered eating, our goal is to help empower you to make the best decision for you. Our programs are data driven with the sole intent of making a psilocybin session the most productive for you.
We believe that psilocybin as a natural product has an extraordinary ability when taken to help individuals with issues such as depression, anxiety, and trauma to achieve clinical improvements when facilitated by psychedelic professionals and integrated with a licensed mental health professional.
