In this interview, Psychedelic Spotlight’s Swati Sharma and Fireside Co-Founder Hanifa Washington discuss why risk reduction, harm reduction and education are essential components for the growth of psychedelics space.
Fireside Project is a non-profit psychedelic support line helping people trip better while minimizing the risks and fulfilling the potential of people’s psychedelic experiences. They do that by providing compassionate, accessible, and culturally responsive peer support, educating the public, and furthering psychedelic research, while embracing practices that increase equity, power sharing, and belonging within the psychedelic movement.
Fireside Project’s Psychedelic Peer Support Line offers free, confidential peer support by phone and text message to people in the midst of psychedelic experiences, people holding space for others who are in the midst of psychedelic experiences, and people integrating past psychedelic experiences. We do not provide medical care, medical assessment, or psychotherapy.
