From Big Think: “One commonality among those contemplating suicide is a lack of meaning in life. Someone doesn’t care about them, the world doesn’t care, they’ve been hurt and no bright future is ahead. Clinically, depression is tied with a lack of hope. Since there is no ‘hope neurotransmitter,’ pinpointing one brain region or chemical is unlikely to work. We need a holistic approach to healing, one that psychedelics offer.”
