Psychedelic-assisted therapy: What psychiatrists need to know


27 April 2023


In early February, the Therapeutic Goods Administration announced that from 1 July 2023, authorised psychiatrists will be able to prescribe medicines containing psychedelic substances, psilocybin and MDMA, for the treatment of PTSD and treatment-resistant depression.

This webinar had RANZCP President, A/Prof Vinay Lakra, and Prof Richard Harvey, Chair of the Psychedelic Assisted Therapy Steering Group, who outlined the College’s position, role, and explore the implications for psychiatry and the mental health sector.

The event was hosted by Sharon McGowan, RANZCP CEO and members had the opportunity to participate in a live Q&A during the webinar and submit their questions prior in the registration form below.
