American Psychedelic Practitioners Association (APPA) is the national home for the diverse community of psychedelic practitioners. Our mandate is to safely and holistically support the integration of psychedelic-assisted care and therapy into the US healthcare system.


APPA is a community, and we are proud of the talent and dedication of our team and advisors.

Working Groups

The APPA working groups support our work through structured advisement, consultation, and active co-creation.


We are grateful to be in solidarity with leading organizations.

About Our Work

Why We Exist

The American Psychedelic Practitioners Association was born out of the need to establish, legitimize, and self-govern the reemerging field of psychedelics. In addition to creating a national home for the diverse community of psychedelic practitioners, a professional association is necessary to advocate for the adoption of psychedelic treatments into the healthcare system and to ensure access for all who could benefit.
