I support MAPS because I believe wholeheartedly in the benefits of psychedelics if used purposefully and mindfully as tools for healing. As a 25 year old who has suffered from OCD, PTSD and depression for much of their life, and having tried different medications and psychotherapies with only short term relief that came with many side effects, it was only after my first use of LSD in a healing environment (a forest, with loved ones), did I truly feel capable of understanding and approaching complete management and recovery. I understood my own reality and experiences in a way I had never done so before. The same (although slightly different) profound healing moments occurred with MDMA, psilocybin and mescaline. I have and only will go on these journeys a handful of times in my life, but that is all that is needed. If you truly desire release from your demons and are willing to hold onto the lessons that psychedelics have to offer, I fully believe that they are capable of assisting you greatly. Thank you, MAPS, for raising awareness and conducting research into the benefits of these fascinating chemical angels.
I'm personally living with ptsd, social anxiety, anxiety and panic disorder. On the outside I try and look appear and act as normal as could be, but little do people know my battle internally with just trying to convince myself to remain living. Pharmaceuticals do NOT help me nor several others I know who suffer in silence. It's way past the time for better research and better options.
The need for new and innovative techniques to tackling a variety of mental health problems is now needed more than ever! The stresses of everyday existence and the increase in technological advances has brought about more mental health issues than ever before. It's great to see that organistations like this are using alternative tools which generate great results! Keep up the good work MAPS, hopefully one day I'll even be able to join you in making psychedelic studies mainstream and accepted within society.
The PTSD pharmaceuticals didn't work. Some made it much worse. Cannabis saved my life. I'll never go back to the poisons!
Thank you MAPS for fighting to end this ignorant/corrupt drugwar!
The front runners in a movement that will be one of the largest global shifts towards a better world. There are so many ways in which our society is suffering (psychologically, emotionally, spiritually), usually involuntarily, and we are left with inadequate tools and outdated information to address these very serious issues. MAPS is dedicated to moving culture beyond the fear of the "War on Drugs" days to an educated, brighter and healthier tomorrow.
Aids me in feeling comfortable that the future is in good hands !! These proteins aid in being in one place. At a time. For being lost in time behind the eyelid of the minds. One can't say I'm blind just need a couple of dimes worth of your time?? Jah bless ~n~ aya be with you!!
MAPS je jedina asocijacija na svetu koja se bavi istraživanjem ogromnih potencijala psihodeličnih i enteogeničnih supstanci na ovaj način i zbog toga zaslužuje da bude proglašena najboljom besprofitnom asocijacijom. Ovom svetu je pod hitno potrebna promena kojoj MAPS pokušava da doprinese na jako profesionalan način.
The first LSD experience I had was like loosing my virginity! I feel these drugs have profound psychiatric uses that can help people in many ways
If we don't research psychedelics & neurotransmitters more thoroughly we will never understand & cure mental diseases that severely impair people in their lives.
