Oregon Psilocybin - Public Listening Sessions



Oregon Psilocybin Services (OPS) will hold a series of three virtual public listening sessions in July, 2022. The public listening sessions are an opportunity for you to share your comments, ideas, questions and concerns about the implementation of Ballot Measure 109, the Oregon Psilocybin Services Act. We will conduct separate public hearings to receive comments on proposed rules later in the year.

The listening sessions will each be two hours in length and open to the general public. A short overview of the rulemaking process will be presented at the beginning of each session. The remainder of time will be reserved for open public comment. 

Spanish interpretation, American Sign Language interpretation, and CART captioning services will be provided. The listening sessions will be recorded and the audio will be posted on this webpage.  We hope you will join us!

December 2021 Listening Sessions

The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) extends gratitude to all community members who took time to attend and participate in the first series of public listening sessions. We heard different perspectives on many topics and recognize the breadth of expertise that Oregonians hold and can contribute to ensure a safe and successful launch of the Oregon Psilocybin Services Section at OHA. Thank you for your respectful and helpful comments and questions. 

Overview
OHA held a series of three virtual public listening sessions in December, 2021. The listening sessions were two hours in length and open to the general public. A short overview of Measure 109 (M109) was presented at the beginning of each session. The remainder of time was reserved for open public comment, which was focused around a different topic each day. Spanish interpretation was provided at all three sessions.

After the listening sessions, OHA staff compiled feedback across the three listening sessions and created a document that summarizes questions and answers (below). The listening sessions were recorded and will continue to inform future program development, educational materials, and community engagement.
