Why Choose ATMA?
ATMA mission to support healthcare professionals integrate psychedelic medicine into their practices.
ATMA designs training programs, systems, networks, and infrastructure to support healthcare professionals in preparation for legalization of psychedelic-assisted therapy. In alignment with our mission, ATMA provides a clear, guided path for clinics and healthcare professionals to practicably adopt psychedelic-assisted therapy into their current practices.

Who is ATMA for?
A Community of Psychedelic Practitioners for Psychedelic Practitioners

Why Start Now?
The demand for quality education and training programs in psychedelic-assisted therapy will outstrip the supply available very quickly and significantly beginning late 2022 as Oregon prepares to legalize its Psilocybin Services. There simply isn’t an ability to train that many therapy providers as fast as clients will be seeking this service to be offered, a bottleneck will build and many therapy providers who wish to be early adopters will have to wait. ATMA is working on addressing the issue so more therapy providers can receive training in a timely manner but we urge those interested to begin now and not wait till the bottleneck occurs.
Our programs and platform will fully prepare mental healthcare professionals, especially those in British Columbia, Alberta, Oregon, California, Washington, Idaho, and Nevada who can begin their education and training now, to begin practicing legal psilocybin-assisted therapy as early as mid 2023, under Oregon’s legal Psilocybin Services.
