    What have you found has helped improve access to underserved communities and what more do you suggest needs to be done?

    One idea is to identify and connect to a community leader that is well-known within the community they represent. Being able to include this individual in the decision-making process can have a big influence on policy creation to ensure underserved communities are represented and vehicles to healing are accessible.

    Improving equitable access to psychedelic medicine is such an important conversation to have. I'd love to hear what others think!

    I think the best thing this community can do is to try and educate as many people as possible to try and stop stigma and open a few minds. Once people are open to psychedelic medicine, making sure it reaches underserved communities will be much simpler. If you think about it, all communities are currently underserved as it comes to psychedelic medicine.

      I agree. Education is so empowering and crucial for beating the stigma with these compounds. Perhaps targeting educational outreach programs to underserved communities could be helpful. What are your thoughts?

        I think that's a fantastic idea. And I think that's where leaders from those communities, like you referenced above, could be very helpful in assisting the people making those programs to help tailor them to each specific audience and their particular needs.
