«Many of our guests have an urgent need to address the emotional and mental health burden of COVID-19,» said Justin Townsend, MycoMeditation’s CEO and Lead Facilitator. «Guests have talked about the loss of loved ones, being hospitalized for COVID-19 and the everyday scenarios of living under the stress of COVID-19,» he added.
Recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states COVID-19 has made it more challenging for people to access mental health services and indicates one in four adults reported experiencing symptoms of an anxiety or depressive disorder in February 2021, a significant increase from the prior year.
«The combination of uncertainty and social distancing induced by the COVID-19 pandemic may lead to excessive fear, loneliness and depressive thoughts, and current studies show psilocybin’s ability to relieve symptoms of depression, end of life anxiety, social stresses and PTSD,» said Townsend.
