    TW: Suicide
    Glen Boyes
    Glen was deployed to Afghanistan in 2010/2011 to Helmand province as part of the counter IED task force. He took part in the biggest counter IED op in Afghan history safely clearing and returning a large village back to locals. This tour did not come easy as his team suffered 2 casualties in an IED blast 15 days into our tour. As soldiers, they stop that emotion and carry on with the job and the rest of the tour.
    Glen suffered PTSD through lockdown 11/12 years later. Working with a therapist and using brain scans, he microdosed psilocybin to help improve. Glen’s brain scans were phenomenal; he felt free, clear and regained focus again. Glen is now the director of an NFT project called Flesh of the Gods. His aim is to create a global peak performance hub for the community and support the research into psychedelic treatment and help veterans with PTSD and all mental health issues.
