UK advisory body issues rapid response on psychedelics for anxiety
The UK’s independent Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST) has issued a rapid response on psychedelic-assisted therapy for anxiety disorders.
The response is intended to inform policymakers on the topic as increasing research around psychedelics shows the compounds may hold promise as innovative treatments in the area of mental health.
The rapid response is the second response on psychedelics to come from POST – one of the first independent bodies of its kind in the world that sources independent analysis of public policy issues relating to science and tech for government.
POST has confirmed it intends to publish a major briefing on psychedelic drugs to treat mental health conditions in 2024.READ MORE
