Our Organization

The BPMT is a California Non-profit Public Benefit Corporation, supported entirely by donations. We are fiscally sponsored by the Players Philanthropy Fund which is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) organization. Contributions to BPMT are charitable deductions to the full extent allowable by law. As a non-profit, our goal in this effort is not about profits, but rather about achieving our passionate goals.

Many dedicated individuals have helped to further this work. The joint efforts of many individuals and organizations have been instrumental to BPMT and our attempts to develop a certification for the emerging profession of psychedelic medicine. We thank all of those that have offered their support to BPMT in the past and present and invite anyone that is aligned with this cause to support us with their donations to our efforts.


“Evolve supports projects that enhance the evolution of consciousness. We believe that the frontier of psychedelic medicine in mental health has the potential to enhance the well-being and consciousness for millions of people. It’s our intention that any activities related to human health benefit from enhanced accountability and professionalization. To those ends, we are supporting BPMT to establish certification for psychedelic therapists. We believe that this project will support the acceptance and credibility of psychedelic work, creating a professional environment that is safe and healing.”

“My career has revolved around the insurance industry and the health care delivery system. I became an early supporter of this project as I appreciate the value of certification to drive early insurance acceptance and ultimately reimbursement. More than that, this level of professionalism will protect public safety by enhancing ethical standards of care. If we want equitable access, strong ethical guidelines and full medical integration of these services, board certification is our most predictable path forward.”
