Reconnecting 1000 veterans

A project to unite organisations behind a common mission: to unite and address the ongoing crisis of veteran suicide and PTSD with legal psychedelic assisted therapy, research, coaching and integration.

1000 Vets

We are a collaboration of psychedelic & veteran organisations and other partners (press, scientific, sponsorships, etc.), committed to proving the best possible care, therapeutic, legal and scientific framework for psychedelic assisted therapy, with the ambition to reduce suicide and PTSD in veterans.

To address the PTSD and suicide crisis, we need to act like we would a crisis: UNITE

Not to carry on as business as usual, no matter how well intended all our respective initiatives, it is time to unite and lead by example and show the world the impact of psychedelics

Our Mission

To receive sponsorship for 1000 veterans to be served with professional, science based psychologically guided psychedelic assisted therapy with the aim to reduce veterans’ persistent mental health issues.

Step forward, join our shared mission. Let us unite and share our stories to the world and reignite support of our troops when they need it most: yesterday!

The 4 Project pillars

Sponsorship

We need all of our collective efforts, network, specialisation, competences and skills to share our stories and mission to have 1000 veterans sponsored. What is the problem? Why this is necessary? What is being done. What is our solution? These are all questions that require careful considerations and thought out solutions to support our mission.

P. R.

We need one voice to represent us, to articulate, educate, promote and de-stigmatise our work and our mission. We require a consistent, professional and informed paradigm to further our mission. To build bridges, unite and educate those interested in our work.

Therapy

From first contact after sign-up to the last feedback and contact with veterans, we require a scientifically proven therapeutic framework to operate in. Psychologists, psychiatrists, neurologists, therapists and other professionals play a transparant coordinated therapeutic role as care providers.

Science

From defining our potential (veteran) subject requirements and all metrics along the entire client journey: measurements (software, wearables, laboratory, psychological) and analyses. All are paramount to safety, efficacy and transparency. We are required to show the power of our work to the world (outside clinical research) and help turn the tide.

What to do now?

Use your network to get specialists involved. Medical, veteran sponsorship organisations, psychiatrists, scientific institutes and more…

Share this website to those who can help!

Showing the world we lead by example and provide the science and personal stories to change veterans’ lives and enable a route towards large scale adaptation of psychedelic assisted therapy by initiating a global public dialogue in the press.

We’ll plan a mega PR & press offensive and make sure we’ll get sponsorship to the top of the agenda!

Manifesto
1000 Vets

Our Mission:

To receive sponsorship for 1000 veterans to be served with professional, science based psychologically guided psychedelic assisted therapy with the aim to reduce veterans’ persistent mental health issues.

Our motivation:

With more suicides then combat casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan combined, we feel the urgent need to address the global veteran PTSD and suicide crisis and as such, we as organisations, are stepping forward and committing to act like we would a crisis: WE UNITE.


Our vision:

We believe it is time to work together and show the world the promise and impact of psychedelic assisted therapy and its dramatic effects on veterans’ mental health and by reconnecting them to themselves and their families. We envision a broad international public dialogue, free of stigma and fueled by science and the practical results and personal (veteran) testimonials. 

Our resources:


We are a collaboration of psychedelic veteran organisations and other related partner organisations and professionals, committed to raising funds, promoting our mission and providing the best possible education and care, in a therapeutic, legal and scientific framework for psychedelic assisted therapy, with the ambition to affect enduring reductions in suicide and PTSD in veterans. We commit to allocating “reasonable time and resources” and  “reasonable reductions” in pricing, fees or similar costs to stretch sponsor funds used for veterans

How we organise:

Collaborating organisations will primarily be active in one of four pillars: 

  1. Fundraising 
  2. PR 
  3. Therapy
  4. Science

Participating organisations will work transparently, make public our methods and findings to share our mission’s work with the world and to further our vision and promote a safe and open dialogue. A project programme staff and supervising board is to be established.
