Open House

We’re so excited to be hosting an open house event at the end of March. We’d love to meet you and show you our new space!

Our event will take place between 4:30 and 7pm on Monday, March 25th. There will be snacks and beverages provided for all attendees.

We’ll be giving an overview of our mental health services, from the perspective of both practitioners and patients. Of course the event will include a tour of the new clinic space!

Come see us at #1155 – 5555 Calgary Trail NW in Edmonton

We hope to see you there!

Our New Website

We are proud to show off our new website at cenalife.ca (and here you are)! This new site was built with you in mind.

If you’re an individual seeking information about our unique mental health offerings, you can get an overview of our services here. If you’re interested in learning more about psychedelics and psychedelic-assisted therapy, you can visit our Psychedelics 101 page for a wealth of educational resources. If you want more information on what conditions we treat, we recommend starting here.

If you’re a practitioner (or a clinic) interested in integrating psychedelic-assisted therapy (PaT) into your current practice, we are here to guide you. Our site has information here, or you can read about our partnership with ATMA here. ATMA/Cena Life services offer comprehensive services to address the challenges of time, resources, and regulatory complexities. Speaking of which…

Did you know we’ve partnered with ATMA for psychedelic-assisted therapy in Calgary? Our Calgary location is now accepting new patients.

On January 25th, our Founder & CEO Reverdi Darda had the pleasure of speaking in a Psychedelic Association of Canada webinar and panel discussion with Jay KatzVu Tran and Mark Haden on “The Evolution of Psychedelic Clinics in Canada in 2024.” It was a great session!

If you missed it you can watch the replay below, or find it on YouTube.

On Thursday February 29th, Reverdi Darda spoke on an exclusive panel hosted by the Psychedelic Medicine Association. We’re always thrilled to engage in the discussion on increasing accessibility to psychedelic medicine, as it’s a topic we’re actively addressing every day at Cena Life.

Our mission is for all mental health care options to be on the table for every individual, regardless of their background or history.

This webinar is exclusive to Psychedelic Medicine Association members. If you’d like to become a member, you can do so here!

“MAPS Canada is pleased to be undertaking its first research study: Examining the Special Access Program (SAP) for Therapeutic Access to Psychedelics in Canada Nationally – An Exploratory Study of the Determinants Impacting Access (EXPAND Study).”

If you are a licensed prescriber, we encourage you to participate in The Expand Study. The goal of this study is to discover the most common barriers to applying for a SAP license, as many prescribers who are eligible to apply through the SAP do not apply. MAPS Canada has launched this study to help understand why; whether they are unaware of the program, hesitant to use it, or face other barriers.
