Crowdfunding campaign launched to raise money for new OCD research

Orchard, a new charity set up by OCD sufferer Nick Sireau, is using Crowdfunding to raise funds for a new research trial using psilocybin – the active ingredient in magic mushrooms  – to see whether it might help treat OCD.

Prof David Nutt and his team at Imperial College have already shown that psilocybin is a novel, fast-acting anti-depressant. Nick wants to raise £80,000 for Prof Nutt to study whether it might also be an anti-obsessive. He already has funds of £30,000 in the bank and needs help to raise the remaining £50,000.

The research project is in partnership with Imperial College London and aims to investigate whether psilocybin is effective in reducing the symptoms of OCD. A previous, smaller study at the University of Arizona (published in 2006) showed that even a very small dose of psilocybin was effective in reducing OCD symptoms.
