MIND Community Platform

Code of Conduct
for the MIND Community Platform 

The MIND Community is a value-based network of people and organizations. We promote safe, legal, and evidence-based psychedelic research, psychedelic therapies, and the rational enculturation of psychedelic states.  

The MIND Community aims to be diverse and inclusive. Parts of the community organize professionals (physicians, psychotherapists, lawyers etc.) while other parts of the community are open for people seeking self-development or for those who participated in events or workshops from MIND and our partner organizations. 

We value the participation and engagement of each member of the MIND community who is committed to establishing safe, legal and evidence-based use of the psychedelic experience in therapy and self-development. 

Everyone who participates in the MIND community platform is obliged to act according to the MIND Communities values and the code of conduct formulated in this document. Hosts and moderators will enforce this code and will exclude anyone unwilling or unable to act accordingly.
