“Every year, tens of millions of people use psychedelics to enhance their life experiences. Sometimes, especially in public settings, psychedelic experiences can be difficult or overwhelming. As a healthcare provider, I understand people are going to use drugs regardless of legal status. All we want to do is help people. Harm reduction is a vital tool in reducing negative outcomes with drug use and that’s why I’m offering a matching donation to the Zendo Project.” -- Community Physician & Donor

Your gift will support psychedelic harm reduction initiatives at the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) including the Zendo Project.

For ten years, MAPS' Zendo Project has been entirely funded by donors like you to provide compassionate support for people undergoing difficult psychedelic experiences. The Zendo Project facilitates psychedelic harm reduction by training volunteers and professionals like first responders to provide education, resources, and peer support services, particularly at large events. This year, the Zendo Project will return to Burning Man to provide peer support services after a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19.

Donors like you have helped prevent and transform thousands of difficult psychedelic experiences through educating and training volunteers. Peer support services help reduce the number of psychedelic-related hospitalizations and arrests by providing non-judgmental and trauma-informed support to those undergoing difficult experiences.

You can learn more about our psychedelic harm reduction initiatives at maps.org and zendoproject.org.
