Psychedelics: a TV Broadcast, Two Interviews, Many Press Reports

In recent months there has been a great deal of press interest in our activities related to the research and use of psychedelics in psychiatry. A first highlight was the TV broadcast on 3SAT (Scobel) on November 21, 2019 with the title “Drogen als Medizin”.

Psilocybin and LSD

It can be viewed here.

I also gave interviews to two medical journalists. One was published in the “Ärztliches Journal – Neurologie Psychiatrie”, entitled “Psychedelika in der Psychiatrie”. It can be read here. The other interview with the title “Wir stoßen ein Tor zum Unbewußten auf” was published in “Info Neurologie + Psychiatrie”. I can be found here, but you have to register to read the full text. If you want to get the PDF file directly, just send me a message. Both interviews were published in February 2020.

A highlight was the article in “Der Spiegel” on February 15, 2020. It is entitled “Wir sind alle Gott” and is available here. However, the complete article can only be read via Spiegel plus, if you do not have access, send me a message and I send you the PDF file.

A very good article was published on January 22, 2020, in the “Pharmazeutische Zeitung”. It is entitled “Der Weg zum Glück” and can be read here.

The economic potential of psychedelics was the focus of an article in “Die Wirtschaftswoche”, published on January 15, 2020, with the title “Wunderpilze auf Kasse”. For “Premium” readers, it is available here, for all the others who want to read the article, please send me a message.

The latest article was published in the “Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung” last Sunday, on March 1, 2020, with the title “Der unendliche Trip”. Unfortunately, it is also not publicly available. You can get a PDF file of the article if you send me a message.

Finally, our team at the Central Institute of Mental Health is intensely working – together with the team at the Charité Berlin – to get the first large study with psilocybin in patients with treatment-resistant depression in Germany running. I will keep you informed, we are close to the finish line.
