Support TRIP

We need your support

The mental health challenges people face are greater now than ever before. Pacific Treatment & Research In Psychedelics (TRIP) is dedicated to the appropriate medical use of psychedelic-assisted therapy to heal the mind, improve brain health and enhance quality of life.

Why support TRIP?

To be successful in this expanded vision of TRIP, additional philanthropic support is needed given that federal funding, particularly National Institutes of Health support, remains limited for psychedelics research. Most psychedelic research and clinical trials are currently being funded through philanthropy or by psychedelic start-up companies. 


The TRIP Center is dedicated to the development of psychedelic-assisted therapies and the scientific exploration of how psychedelic medicines and expanded states of consciousness can be harnessed to change behavior, improve brain health and optimize quality of life.


We aim to:

  • Develop safe & effective psychedelic-assisted therapies for behavioral health conditions including anxiety, depression, addiction, PTSD, grief & related disorders.
  • Advance psychedelic science and our understanding of the neuroplastogenic potential of psychedelic medicines for treating mental health disorders, brain injury, neurodegenerative conditions & pain syndromes.
  • Help expand access to those in need of psychedelic-assisted therapies including underserved and under-represented communities.
  • Educate the medical community and public-at-large on the potential impact of psychedelic-assisted therapies and the growing field of psychedelic science.

If you or someone you know is in crisis, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (Lifeline) at 1-800-273-TALK (8255), or text the Crisis Text Line (text HELLO to 741741).
