- Compassionate Access: Establishing safe, and legal access to psychedelic-assisted therapy for those in medical need.
- Public Education: Increasing awareness of the merits and limitations of psychedelic-assisted therapy.
- Professional Training: Developing safe, simple and effective protocols for credentialed health professionals to deliver psilocybin-assisted therapy, in collaboration with other active organizations; and,
- Research: Facilitate research and evaluation in collaboration with Canadian and international partners.
“Our team at New Wave is very excited and optimistic about the therapeutic potential of psychedelic medicine and the future of the industry, especially for those patients in considerable distress or facing end-of-life.
