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.

Click here to watch my lesson to First Responders on effectively managing patients who are experiencing acute psychosis or an emotional crisis.  I presented this as Continuing Medical Education for Paramedics in Halifax, Nova Scotia.  It outlines two intense calls that I attended where we were able to use psychological harm reduction and crisis intervention techniques to help patients experiencing two different forms of altered states.  These techniques prevented police from having to use lethal force, allowing us to get the best outcomes possible for the patients involved.  Feel free to use this information or the techniques I teach in your daily life to help others!
