Psychedelic-Assisted Therapies – Attitudes Survey

Much public debate has ensued since the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s consideration of some psychedelics as potential treatments in clinical practice, yet little is known about the opinions of mental health professionals surrounding this issue.

As a registered South African psychiatrist or clinical/counselling psychologist, you are invited to participate in a short online questionnaire that aims to determine attitudes towards psychedelics and psychedelic-assisted therapy among psychiatrists and psychologists.

If you wish to participate, please click on the link below to an anonymous online survey that will ask questions about yourself, and your views on psychedelics and psychedelic-assisted therapy. The study has obtained ethics clearance through the University of the Witwatersrand’s HREC (protocol H20/06/07). The questionnaire should take you approximately 15-40 minutes to complete. The purpose of the study is to gain insight into the attitudes towards psychedelics and psychedelic-assisted therapy among mental health experts, and investigate individual factors that could influence these attitudes.   

All appropriate measures have been taken to ensure that any information you provide is strictly confidential and anonymous. You will not be asked to provide any specifically personally identifying information.
