Flight Of Thoughts

The hub that connects emergency medicine, mental health, psychedelic research, harm reduction, and education.

Jake has experience in emergency medical services, community mental health, overdose response, and health promotion. After working as a paramedic he expanded into addiction and mental health field. This has sparked a passion for harm reduction and community crisis work. The primary goals are to translate this experience to the general public, while training harm reduction workers and first responders on the frontlines of the opioid/drug poisoning crisis.

*This podcast does not condone any illegal activity. It operates as a platform for education, harm reduction, social activism, and open dialogue for ideas.

The Psychedelic Society Of First Responders and Emergency Workers

The Psychedelic Society of First Responders and Emergency Workers is active and thriving on FaceBook!  Like and follow our page for first responders and emergency workers (i.e. paramedic, firefighter, police, military, nurse, doctor, crisis worker, counsellor, etc.) that use, or support the use of cannabis and psychedelics; for healing, or enhancing quality of life. This page is both for evidence-based education, harm reduction, and community support networks. Clinical research has shown that cannabis and psychedelics can be powerful tools for healing, when used correctly.

A growing number of first responders and emergency workers are using cannabis and psychedelics to explore who they are, prevent stress-related illness, or to heal from previous acute or accumulated trauma.  Join our psychedelic community if you work in a related field (or support those that do); and wish to connect, exchange information, and share experiences with others like you! Click the link in the title or e-mail psychedelic.frew@gmail.com  for more information.
