CBC Forum: What steps should be taken to help Canadians with PTSD?

  • Not just for PTSD, but for so many other mental health conditions: 1. Cover psychotherapy under provincial medical plans, WCB, etc. Psychotherapy makes a HUGE difference for so many people, but at $100-200/hour, it's tough for many to pay that much. 2. There's a lot of great research out there using drugs like ketamine, ecstacy/MDMA, LSD, psylocybin mushrooms, or ayahuasca to help people with PTSD and other conditions. Make it easiers for doctors to prescribe these things! 3. Get as many new psychiatrists, psychologists, and psychotherapists as we can out there, because we don't have nearly enough mental health professionals out there to help everyone who needs help.
