Events at AAP

The AAP was founded in 2021 with a mission to unite the world’s leading experts in the use of psychedelic medicine and to establish industry-spanning standards of ethics and safety best practices, as well as assist policymakers with creating science-based policy that benefits the public. 

The AAP seeks speakers from various medical, scientific, and industry backgrounds with a wealth of experience in psychedelic medicine, research, business, public relations, marketing, and drug policy reform.

As the scientific community continues to expand research into the medical use of psychedelic compounds, it will be critical for psychedelic medicine providers to have the tools, safety guidelines, and ethical know-how to treat patients with this powerful new class of medications properly. 

Our Mission

Furthermore, the AAP seeks to promote public understanding and knowledge regarding psychedelic medicines. In the United States alone, public opinion about the medical use of psychedelics has massively shifted. Over 70% of Americans support research into the medicinal capabilities of psychedelics, while 52% of individuals with depression are open to exploring psychedelics-based treatments for their conditions. 

With the shift in public opinion continuing to gain momentum, it will be critical for professionals to establish ethical practices and guidelines in what is sure to be a rapidly evolving industry. With that goal in mind, the AAP seeks to build connections and develop mutual safety standards and rules of engagement among medical providers, business owners, researchers, and government bodies. 


AAP Membership

Membership in the AAP is open to individuals or organizations directly or indirectly involved in advancing psychedelic medicine and research. This openness is a core part of the AAP’s platform. Being an inclusive, responsive, and globally-minded organization represents the AAP’s core beliefs that knowledge and change come from all walks of life.
