The Clinic for Psychedelics Assisted Therapy
At the dawn of the psychedelic therapeutics industry, the role of the designer holds enormous potential. Designers will touch all aspects of the healthcare experience: from designing packaging and dosing tools for the medicines, to creating communication interfaces and curating the environment of clinical settings. My thesis project proposes we imagine ourselves in the year 2025. In this speculative future, psychedelic-assisted therapy is legally practiced and is highly regulated. This project envisions a public mental healthcare system existing alongside the current standard of care. The core intent of this system is to provide access to psychedelic medicines, while encouraging patient informed choice, and fostering a sense of community.
