After 283 Days, Health Minister (Finally) Grants Psilocybin Exemptions To Three Canadians With Mental Health Conditions

Yesterday, the Vancouver Sun’s Sam Riches reported that on December 6, Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos granted Section 56 exemptions for three patients with mental health conditions. They were assisted by TheraPsil, a non-profit organization that advocates for compassionate access to psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy. Since 2019, it has helped 47 patients gain access to psilocybin through federal exemptions.
