Dr Nigel Strauss

He has treated trauma victims in some high profile incidents such as the Port Arthur Massacre and the Black Saturday Bushfires. The controversial topic Dr Strauss wants to bring to public attention is to stimulate public policy reform in Australia around sacred plants and related psychoactive compounds, which have been found to be effective as a therapy in treating patients overseas who suffer from depression, anxiety, PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and other mental illnesses.

Dr Strauss believes Australia should be initiating a psychedelic research program, which has already in progress in Europe, Israel and the USA, where MAPS : Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies is at the forefront of world recognition.

The segment opens and ends with a Pink Floyd music clip “Shine On You Crazy Diamond”
