The event convenes industry experts, researchers, thought leaders, and investors to explore public perception of psychedelic medicine and mental health, highlight medical breakthroughs, and discuss global regulatory approaches.
Dr. Rishi Kakar, Medical Director and Chief Scientific Officer at Segal Trials, will speak at the event.

“We are proud to participate in a conference exploring the crossroads of psychedelics and medicine, including how we can scale our industry to meet the demand for new mental health treatments,” said Dr. Kakar. “We look forward to discussing all aspects of psychedelic medicine with our peers, from public health and marginalized communities, to bioresearch monitoring and regulatory changes.”
Wonderland 2022 will include additional notable speakers and public figures, including NBA champion and mental health advocate Lamar Odom, mycologist Paul Stamets, researcher Dr. Robin Carhart-Harris, CEO of Microdose Connor Haslam, and more. They will share their research, discoveries, insights, and predictions for the future of psychedelic medicine.
“Our inclusive approach to bringing psychedelics into the mainstream holds promise for many mental health professionals – and their patients – and will continue to expand in new and exciting ways,” added Dr. Kakar.
Wonderland 2022 will also feature a gallery displaying artwork created before and after veterans’ psychedelic medicinal therapy as a testament to their mental health transformation. Another event highlight is the showing of the documentary The World on Drugs, which provides evidence-based insight into developing accessible psychedelic medicine to transform mental healthcare.
