The Entheos Foundation intends to help fund research into the effects of psychedelics to assess their applicability and potential benefit for various psychological conditions including but not limited to depression, anxiety, PTSD and addiction syndromes in Aoteoaroa New Zealand. Additionally we intend to be an education hub presenting the latest clinical research, anthropological considerations, and socio-cultural issues on which psychedelics have an influence. Education will necessarily have some effect on the national conversation on drug policy and our aim is to be balanced, objective and clear about the potential risks and benefits of psychedelics in mental health treatment and how this might effect drug policy.
We at Entheos are committed to recognizing the immense debt of gratitude owed to Mana whenua Maori in this beautiful country. We will take a collaborative approach to our work ensuring that mana whenua are respected and welcomed into the psychedelic space. We also commit to carrying with us the disparate mental health outcomes for marginalized communities including Maori, Pasifika and immigrant communities. In our work we hope to sensitize all output to the multi-cultural nature of our country to maximize the helpful effect our work has. One-size-fits-all will not work here in Aotearoa New Zealand and we will incorporate many approaches and cultural platforms to ensure the work we do is accessible and beneficial to all.
