Representatives Correa and Bergman, co-chairs of the Psychedelics Advancing Therapies (PATH) Caucus, have long supported a federal study on psychedelic drugs to treat veterans’ unseen wounds.

These therapies claim to treat mental health difficulties with up to 80% effectiveness, making them one of the most breakthrough developments in almost fifty years.

The House included the Correa-Bergman Amendment last year in federal budget legislation, urging the VA to conduct “large-scale studies” on breakthrough drugs like psilocybin and MDMA. Lawmakers plan to battle for universal access to these life-saving therapies.

The announcement has been hailed as a significant step forward in addressing the mental health crisis and advancing therapies that could potentially cure veterans of their invisible wounds.

Congressmen Correa and Bergman continue to ensure these therapies are available to service members and veterans in need.
