The main mission is to connect the experts and to provide the knowledge from the areas of psychedelic research and work with psychedelics to the professionals and the public. Moreover, our goal is to bring factual, rational tone and arguments to social discourse. As a long-term objective, SAPAS aims for destigmatization and integration od psychedelic and related substances to contemporary social and professional framework with the support of social structures, which will further advance the possibilities of their utilization for the benefit of health, personal development and the progress of society.
