Mental illness is the real pandemic.
This silent curse is a plague on society.
As the stresses of modern life intensify, more and more people are struggling to keep up.
Yet despite this global crisis, medicinal science has failed to develop effective forms of treatment.
The problem has become so acute that mental illness is now widely recognized as one of the primary causes of poor health and disability worldwide.
Find this hard to believe?
Well, according to the World Health Organization, one in four of the population has a psychological disorder of some description.
That is a huge number of people. The likelihood is that your life has been touched in some way by mental illness, whether or directly or indirectly.
Depression in particular is on the rise.
This condition can be an especially heavy burden to bear, not least because traditional medicines and treatments have such poor rates of success.
Living with depressive illness can have a devastating effect on relationships, work performance and the ability to live a fulfilling life.
Sufferers can often feel isolated and hopeless, abandoned by a healthcare system that has failed to provide them with the healing they need.
The drugs are too slow to act, the side effects can be horrendous and the odds of a long-term cure are low.
However, this could all be about to change dramatically.
Champignon Brands (CSE:SHRM│OTC:SHRMF) is pioneering a radical new approach to treating depression and other mental health conditions. The company is combining a rigorous scientific approach with innovative clinical therapy and an unusual vital ingredient.
Champignon Brands (CSE:SHRM│OTC:SHRMF) is pursuing the most effective approach to treating depression successfully, right now.
As many as 300 million people live with depression on this planet. Millions more suffer from conditions such as PTSD and substance abuse disorders.
This may shock you to learn, but research from the Mental Health Foundation suggests that as many as one in five adults has considered taking their own lives at some point.
The numbers are alarming and the human cost appalling.
Regrettably, as it stands, fewer than 45% of patients suffering from depression respond positively to traditional antidepressants.
When these drugs do work, they can take up to six weeks to act and the side effects can be worse than the initial diagnosis. Thanks to their addictive nature, coming off antidepressants is very difficult.
And this even assumes that the patient is able to get this far – World Health Organization stats show that approximately 50% do not take their medications as prescribed.
It is no wonder that long-term success rates for patient cure using antidepressants can be as low as 10-15%.
For those who are saddled with the millstone of depression, the prospect of full recovery can feel out of reach.
The mountain appears too steep to climb.
However, this bad situation is improving, and it is improving fast.
When you consider that the global antidepressants market is expected to be worth $28.6 billion in 2020, (a colossal waste of vital resources based on how ineffective they can be) this presents a huge opportunity for Champignon Brands (CSE:SHRM│OTC:SHRMF).
It turns out that ketamine is an extremely effective psychotherapeutic and is now poised to rock the foundations of mental health treatment.
There has been a lot of scientific speculation about ketamine’s potential to act as a mental healing agent since the 1960s.
In recent years, this has culminated in robust research projects, with tens of millions of dollars having been spent on the investigation and validation of ketamine’s value and safety as a “psycho-therapeutic medicine”.
World-class research institutions like John Hopkins University and Yale have been at the vanguard of this new frontier of medicinal science.
The results have been extremely encouraging, and a long list of successful research is being collated at an astonishing pace.
When administered carefully and in the correct dosages, ketamine-based psychotherapeutic medicines can almost instantly improve a patient’s condition.
Whereas traditional antidepressants can take weeks in the human body before beginning to work, ketamine-based treatments can start to act within 24 hours.
As more is learned about ketamine’s action mechanism, its use is gaining wide wider mainstream acceptance in the clinical setting.
Ketamine is proving to be so successful, that the Food and Drug Administration (the “FDA”) in the United States and Health Canada, its Canadian counterpart, have both fast-tracked approvals for its use in drug discovery and clinical trials.
The evidence for ketamine as a powerful treatment is compelling.
So much so, in fact, that In March 2019 major international pharmaceutical company, Johnson & Johnson, won FDA approval for the first ketamine based psychotherapeutic medicine; Spravato.
Spravato is a nasal spray treatment that has opened the door to the next generation of psychotherapeutic medicines.
Where Johnson and Johnson relies on a single product to treat a condition as complex as depression, Champignon Brands’ (CSE:SHRM│OTC:SHRMF) visionary team recognized that long-term successful treatment requires a more comprehensive, patient-centred approach.
While Champignon Brands’ (CSE:SHRM│OTC:SHRMF) continue to make great strides in the development of valuable psychotherapeutic medicines, the company’s immediate goal is to establish a network of 5 specialist clinics across New York, California and Florida.
The company will be the one of the first healthcare provider in North America to provide sufferers of depression with a complete clinical pathway, using the latest psychotherapeutic treatments.
By combining direct clinical care to hundreds of thousands of patients with exciting blockbuster-drug research, Champignon Brands (CSE:SHRM│OTC:SHRMF) is now set to become the global leader in the fight against depression.
This company has billion-dollar potential written all over it.
