This program will reflect various targeted or special CIHR operating grants.

The purpose of this funding opportunity is to strengthen the evidence base and expand research into psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy in identified areas through new randomized phase 1 or 2 clinical trials, which will foster psychedelic-related research capacity and inform the development of future larger scale clinical trials. This should include the collection of data for the purpose of research that is relevant to understanding the efficacy and safety of psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy. The psychotherapy is essential to minimise risks and maximize therapeutic benefit and as such should be administered by a regulated clinician or health care professional (e.g., psychologist, social worker, etc.) trained in psychotherapy. It is strongly encouraged that people with lived and/or living experience are included in the research team to participate in study design, implementation, knowledge mobilization and/or other aspects of the research process, where appropriate.
