The Psilocybin Assisted Therapy Association's (PATA) mission is to promote the advancement of Psilocybin Assisted Therapy. Our goals:
We believe that psilocybin as a natural product has an extraordinary ability when taken to help individuals suffering from trauma, depression, and anxiety to achieve clinical improvements when facilitated by trained mental health therapists.
PATA is incredibly fortunate to be lead by a talented group of people who bring decades of experience in mental health therapy and nonprofit leadership.
