A synthetic form of psilocybin is showing promise in addressing treatment-resistant depression, even … [+] Treatment-resistant depression, or TRD, is a severe condition that can profoundly affect even the most resilient individuals, often leaving them feeling overwhelmed and without hope. With roughly 30% of those experiencing depression not responding to traditional treatments , it’s high time we explore beyond conventional solutions.

Take Emma’s case, for example. She has tried several antidepressants, various therapy methods and even explored alternatives like acupuncture and meditation—all with little to no relief. Each failed attempt adds layers of frustration and despair, making her feel increasingly trapped in her own mind .
