Practitioner Network and Services

The Practitioner Network and Services (PNS) functions to provide the necessary infrastructure to support mental healthcare professionals as they venture to adopt psychedelic medicines into their practices.

Challenges that Inspired Our Solution

Since 2019, there has been a shortage of psychologists available to serve Canadians; the COVID-19 pandemic has only exacerbated this challenge.

Practitioners’ time is in high demand, and most have a limited number of hours available to dedicate to professional development. The time, research, and resources required to develop a psychedelic-assisted therapy program is a significant undertaking that is not feasible for most practitioners.

In order to ethically offer psychedelic-assisted therapy, practitioners need comprehensive training, including important first-hand practicum experience, counselling, and therapy-delivering experience; the combination of these skills will allow the therapist to assist the patient in the integration of their psychedelic journey.

Psychedelic-assisted therapy can be time consuming. Guiding a patient through a psilocybin journey, for example, is often a full day commitment.

We anticipate that there will be demand on other resources, such as helping patients source safe and reliable psychedelic medicine, as well as supporting Section 56 Exemption applications.

Our Practitioner Network and Services (PNS) was conceived as a suite of support services for licensed healthcare professionals interested in psychedelic medicine as they go through the process of incorporating psychedelic-assisted therapy in their practice.

Our goal is to make psychedelic-assisted therapy accessible to as many Canadians as possible. Our action, in support of this goal, and through this suite of services, is to build capacity for regulated healthcare professionals to provide care ethically and safely.

Through Health Canada-approved clinical trials, ATMA offers practitioners the opportunity to gain firsthand experience with psychedelic medicine in a safe space; an additional component of this experience will involve guiding peers through psychedelic journeys, allowing for practitioners to gain a comprehensive understanding from multiple perspectives. 

Clinical trials provide an avenue for practitioners to gain an in-depth knowledge of psychedelic-assisted therapy, from preparation of the client through to post-integration psychotherapy. The clinical trials will operate in conjunction with ATMA’s Psilocybin-assisted Therapy Training Program.
