Adam Strauss, BeQui Frankel

Adam Strauss is a writer and performer based in New York. His monologue The Mushroom Cure is the true story of how he treated his debilitating obsessive-compulsive disorder with psychedelics. The New York Times said it “mines a great deal of laughter from disabling pain,” The Chicago Tribune called it “arrestingly honest and howlingly funny” and Time Out New York called it “riveting; a true-life tour de force” and named it a Critics’ Pick. BeQui Frankel lives in the Bay Area, and for the past few years she has been volunteering with the San Francisco Psychedelic Society and is responsible for the Society’s newsletters. BeQui has been enduring the pain and anxiety of OCD for as long as she can remember. It wasn’t until she moved to California in 2015 that she began discovering the potential therapeutic uses and effects that psychedelics can have on this disorder. In January 2018, she participated in a clinical trial at Stanford University where they studied the effects of Ketamine infusions on patients with OCD. BeQui is dedicated to continuously discovering new methods and medications for managing the psychological challenges she experiences on a daily basis, and she is excited to begin building a Network through SFPS of other people that deal with this disorder.
