Black Mental Health: Psychedelic Healing Potential in African Communities

Darren will share his research that looks at the important historical and current events that have impacted and shaped the lives of African people in the diaspora. He will provide insight into some of traumatic experiences that the current generation inherit and how it affects us all today.

Exploring some of the healing modalities accessible through rites of passage which include the use of entheogenic plants, Darren will highlight some ground breaking research that supports these activities as a way to start the healing process.

With the psychedelic renaissance gaining momentum, how do we ensure that all people across the world, from all backgrounds, are represented at the table and consulted about the future applications of these psychedelic experiences?
