Author: HHP Staff
Heroic Hearts Project (HHP) is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit that connects military veterans struggling with trauma to psychedelic therapy options including ayahuasca, psilocybin, ibogaine, and ketamine treatments in combination with professional coaching and integration.
They provide veterans, who have often exhausted all the resources offered by the Department of Veteran Affairs and don’t know where to turn, with education about and access to these alternative healing modalities. Their mission is to restore hope and empower each veteran in his or her own healing process.
Secondarily, HHP aims to contribute to the growing base of psychedelic research, to educate the public on the potential of psychedelics based on the outcomes of this research, and to advocate for policy changes enabling increased and more equitable access to psychedelic therapies.
