Description

Welcome to our series on the potential of psilocybin-assisted therapy to help us live as well as possible with metastatic breast cancer. 

Distress, including anxiety, depression, and loss of meaning, is a common side effect for those of us living with MBC.  Psilocybin-assisted therapy has been tested and found effective in relieving distress among advanced cancer patients but is not widely available. Our new series provides an introduction to the potential of psilocybin-assisted therapy in healing—rather than suppressing—our distress. 

In this first episode, co-host and producer of this series, Dr. Paula Jayne, and co-host Lynda Weatherby interview Dr. Boadie Dunlop, Director of the Mood and Anxiety Disorders Program at Emory University.  Dr. Dunlop shares existing and emerging data on how psilocybin may help those of us living with MBC and discusses an upcoming pilot trial of psilocybin-assisted therapy at Emory University’s Palliative and Supportive Care Clinic.

Thanks for listening!
