Our Warriors Leaning into Trauma with Psychedelic Medicines: Amber & Marcus Capone/VETS Worth The Fight Podcast

    • Society & Culture

It's a special honor to share the inspired healing our Navy SEALs and Special Forces are engaging: Psychedelic medicines to combat post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury from wartime service. Amber and Marcus Capone bring compassion and duty to this movement, offering humane treatment options to our war veterans amid a mental health crisis and suicide epidemic. We talk Marcus' overcoming, TBI, post-traumatic growth, and the often forgotten wives and overlooked children in the wake of this tragedy.
