Psilocybin, psychological distress and suicidality

One of the most impressive studies in our eyes is THIS ONE, published in 2018 by Jeremy Daniel and Margaret Haberman, cocerning the effect of psychedelics and particularly psilocybin on suicidal thinking, planning and behavior.

This study shows, roughly summarized, that although users of all psychedelics seem to have less problems with psychological distress and suicide, the group that scored best among all was users of ONLY PSILOCYBIN.
