Course Description:  Patients diagnosed with life-threatening forms of cancer may present with comorbid mental health conditions due to the psychological and emotional distress that is resultant from the respective underlying physical illness. The presence of mental health symptoms can effectively function as treatment barriers. A randomized, double-blind, longitudinal trial was developed and implemented to test the efficacy of psilocybin for psychological and emotional symptom mitigation in patients presenting with life-threatening cancer-types. Patients who received high doses of psilocybin evidenced a clinically significant decrease in depressed mood and anxiety up to 6 months post-treatment.
