 saving lives + healing:
mental health

We are fighting for legalized & affordable access to psychedelic therapy, reduced penalties, and evidence-based policy reform through education, advocacy & collaboration.


Click the video below to see the inspiring work our legislators and community are doing to change policy reform in our state.




Do you have a first-hand account of how psychedelic-assisted therapy has made a profound impact and saved lives?  

Why is the issue of psychedelic drug policy reform critical?

Our state and country are facing a mental health crisis. Current treatments are ineffective and failing, and psychedelic medicines have shown great potential for treating conditions such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, addiction, OCD, eating disorders, and more. ​

Much gratitude to Sam Shad and Nevada Newsmakers, for raising awareness about the healing potential of psychedelic medicines!

NCPM at PsyCon 2024

NCPM President Jon Dalton and board member Dr. Sam Zand presented at PsyCon in Las Vegas! Jon's talk walked the audience through the evolution of SB242 in Nevada's unique political environment and spoke to the significance of the need for effective mental health solutions. He also highlighted the necessity for a dual-pronged approach of reducing penalties alongside legalization instead of simply decriminalizing. "Only through regulated legalized access to psychedelic medicine will we be able to offer psychedelic-assisted therapy to our law enforcement, our firefighters, and our 911 dispatchers, many of whom suffer from PTSD. That cannot happen in a decrim-only model."
