Mental Health Issues are a Real Problem
Did you know that 1 out of every 5 Canadians will experience some sort of mental health problem in any given year? Consequently, 8 million deaths are also caused by mental health issues every year worldwide.
Yet even after all these years, the common stigma concerning mental health issues has not changed.
This problem is still not being taken seriously.
The Vicious Cycle of Prescribed Medication for Mental Health
To make matters worse, people seeking help do not have many options for treatment. Most of the time, doctors will simply provide meds to numb their thoughts and feelings, which do not solve the main problem at hand.
This, in turn, makes people dependent on the medicines they are being prescribed.
These people who actually acknowledge their problem and are actively seeking help feel trapped in a vicious cycle they can not escape from because of this.
To combat this issue, TFG is starting a campaign to raise awareness of this problem.
This will be an ongoing project for TFG and will improve as we learn more and have more options available.
As of right now, though, we simply hope to raise awareness.
We encourage people to come together to bring a new perspective to this issue.
Promising Results with Research in Psychedelic Therapy
We have heard of many cases of people resolving their mental health issues with psychedelics and feel that research regarding this should be brought forward.
We found MAPS (Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies), an organization that does research focused on treating health issues with psychedelic therapy.
