Innovative therapeutics to address disparities
In this Advisory Board article you'll learn about:
- Psychedelic-assisted therapy involves using a high dose of a psychedelic substance to treat a variety of behavioral and mental health issues.
- Hispanic and African American populations have higher rates of major depressive disorder. Native American and multiple-race populations are at higher risk of substance abuse. There are clear racial disparities in treatment for therapeutic areas that brain stimulation is used for.
- Some solutions will be to address and acknowledge stigma surrounding mental health conditions in marginalized groups. It will also be vital to ensure adequate representation in clinical trial data and evidence across a broad spectrum.
