Around ten years ago, Mathias de Lattre’s interest in psychedelics led him to begin researching psilocybin, the naturally occurring hallucinogenic substance produced by around 180 species of fungus. He had the intuition that such mushrooms might constitute an alternative to the psychiatric treatment his mother, who had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, was receiving. His search took him from the prehistoric painted caves in France and traditional medicinal practices in the Peruvian jungle, to scientists researching psilocybin in London and Zurich. Through texts and images, ‘Mother’s Therapy’ brings together science and humanity, providing context for his mother’s “cure”.
