Oregon Psilocybin Services - Public Listening Sessions

Public listening sessions are an opportunity to share comments, ideas, questions and concerns. OHA has held two series of public listening sessions and will hold the next series in July 2023. The Public Listening Sessions are an opportunity to provide feedback about the implementation and ongoing administration of the Oregon Psilocybin Services Act (Measure 109/ ORS 475A).

July 2023 Listening Sessions

The first series of public listening sessions was held in December, 2021 and the second was in July, 2022. You can find the presentations and recordings of the past sessions below. The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) extends gratitude to all community members who took time to attend and participate in our public listening sessions. We have heard different perspectives on many topics and recognize the breadth of expertise that Oregonians hold and contribute to ensuring a safe and successful launch of the Oregon Psilocybin Services Section at OHA. Sign up for updates to learn about more ways to engage.
