Sara Reed: Black Women, Psychedelic Healing, and Liberation
Show Notes Chapter Markers

Authentic community, culturally informed therapy, and deep care for humanity are Sara Reed’s keys to psychedelics access. A licensed marriage and family therapist, Sara is changing the face of mental healthcare as the CEO of the digital health startup Mind’s iHealth and as an advocate for health equity in psychedelic medicine. In our conversation, we connect from the heart about getting credentialed, getting good care, and getting all of us to liberation.
