In this webinar from the Student Psychedelic Conference, we hear from two groups doing amazing harm reduction work!
Amanda Guzinska started working with PsyCare since 2013 having discovered them at a festival a couple of years prior while helping a friend through a difficult experience. Among her friends or even strangers in need, Amanda has always been known to assume the ‘mum’ role – PsyCare provided her an opportunity to do this in an official capacity and it was instant love for the project and felt natural to get involved.
Laura von Nordheim has been volunteering with PsyCare (former KosmiCare) at festivals across the UK for 8+ years. Three Psychology degrees, two clinical placements and Mental health First Aid Training render her a valuable contribution to the diverse PsyCare team, which requires people from all walks of life to support people from all walks of life.
Chelsea Rose graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles Honors College with a B.A. in psychology in 2007, and received her master’s degree in Integral Counseling Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies in 2012. She has a passion for harm reduction as a therapeutic and practical approach to drug use and abuse prevention. Chelsea also works with DanceSafe, a public health organization, as manager for the reagent testing kit program. Additionally, she supervises the Crisis Response Team in Nevada County, supporting clients who come into the emergency room in psychiatric crisis. She lives in the Sierra foothills of California with her husband Alexandre, who is also involved in harm reduction work, their three children, and their chickens, fish, and kitties.
