Ways We Educate & Build Community

Psychedelic Psychotherapy Forum is the longest running psychedelic conference of its kind in Canada, and is unique today in that it is crafted for and co-created with practitioners, supporting, working, and training, in the field of psychedelic-assisted therapy. 

The Forum / Conference is an opportunity for everyone interested in the field of psychedelic-assisted therapy — including health providers, advocates, researchers, students, bodyworkers, traditional and/or holistic therapists — to come together to network, and to dialogue about learnings, opportunities, issues and challenges, models of healthcare, and standards of practice.
