Attention-deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), is a lifelong neurodevelopmental disorder in which the brain develops differently, leading to issues with attention, inhibition of thoughts, movements and emotions. This talk will cover how psychedelics work in the brain, how an ADHD brain looks and functions differently to non-ADHD brains, and the emerging evidence that psychedelics may be an effective therapeutic option for some people with ADHD.
The use of psychedelic drugs as therapeutic treatments for psychiatric disorders have led to their use being suggested for other conditions such as ADHD. Join us and discover how!
Doors open at 5:30pm, talk starts at 6pm – come down early to grab a good seat!
