Introduction to psychedelic support with PsyCare UK - How to support someone through a challenging psychedelic experience

PsyCare UK have over ten years of experience provided support for challenging psychedelic experiences at festivals and events. Providing support in the event of a challenging experience can ease discomfort for the person, help to restore equilibrium to their biopsychosocial functioning, minimise the potential for psychological trauma, and facilitate the transformation of the experience into an opportunity for personal growth.

In this workshop you will learn about the principles of psychedelic support, how a challenging experience might manifest and the practical application of the skills. Feel confident that you would know what to do if you came across someone in need.

PsyCare UK (formerly Kosmicare UK) is a charity that provides welfare and harm reduction services at music festivals and events throughout the UK and internationally, specialising in managing psychedelic crisis. PsyCare UK recognise that psychedelic experiences can have profound effects upon people and therefore that difficult psychedelic experiences must be handled with special care and consideration. PsyCare UK have developed a unique skill-set that enables them to effectively manage these challenging experiences in a way that minimises unnecessary hospitalisation or medication, whilst giving the individual the best possible opportunity to learn and grow from the experience.
