Who we are

Researchers of Psychedelics, Leaders of Change.

Founded in 1986, the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization specializing in research and education. Our work develops medical, legal, and cultural shifts so people can benefit from the careful use of psychedelics and marijuana for mental health, well-being, and connection.

In other words, we’ve dedicated the last 36 years to changing the way people think of, talk about, and consume psychedelics through research, education, and advocacy.
