Psychedelic Research in Science & Medicine (PRISM) is an Australian non-profit research association that develops, initiates, coordinates and supports formal research into mainstream medical applications of psychoactive compounds, known as psychedelics. PRISM was founded in March 2011 as an incorporated association and is a government approved tax-exempt charity.
The word ‘psychedelic’ was explicitly included in the name of our organisation in the hope of encouraging more widespread familiarity, removing the mystery of the unknown, addressing the social stigma still attached to psychedelics and ultimately according them value and respect.
PRISM is currently collaborating with the USA based Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) with the aim of establishing MDMA-PTSD research in Australia. We are also active in the areas of harm reduction and evidence based drug law reform.
