Who we are

Based in Victoria, Canada, and established in 2019, TheraPsil is a non-profit coalition of healthcare professionals, patients, and advocates dedicated to obtaining legal access to psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy for Canadians in medical need. You can meet our team, here.

How does TheraPsil help?

TheraPsil supports Canadians who experience end-of-life distress, to exercise their charter right to seek compassionate treatment using psilocybin, through an application for exemption of section 56(1) of the controlled substances and drug act (CDSA).

TheraPsil then connects approved patients with qualified healthcare professionals who facilitate psilocybin-therapy.
