The burgeoning psychedelic field brings particular ethical considerations from–social justice and inclusion–to data use and privacy. We are committed to being a community leader in both the equal access to psychedelic medicine and the ethical flow of data. We are grateful for the opportunity to identify and operationalize our ethical commitments into every aspect of our company.
At Maya, we believe that psychedelic practitioners have the power to improve the mental health and wellbeing of millions of people on a global scale. However, more data is needed to safely advance and scale psychedelic-assisted healthcare practices. Our software platform was designed to empower psychedelic practitioners to track, measure, and illustrate the clinical outcomes of their work, so that we can scale safely and effectively, serve more people, and contribute clinical data to help advance psychedelic healthcare.
While we know that the Maya platform will play a key role in generating essential insights into psychedelic healthcare practices, we also acknowledge that this role comes with great responsibility. We take our role as the ethical stewards of the flow of data between patients, clients, practitioners and researchers very seriously. The following ethical positions will serve as the foundation for everything that we do and everything we stand for. We’re humbled at the collective knowledge of the psychedelic community and grateful for the opportunity to continue working on these values as our field evolves.
