Please note that the ‘MADNESS’ component/element of this project’s title is an acronym derived from its title. It is not used here in any perjorative/derogatory way and should not be construed as such. There is no intention to upset or stigmatise any individual or groups that may suffer from mental health issues. If anything, this project aims to understand the psychoactive effects of Novel Psychoactive Substances in order to educate society as a whole, as well as health professionals, about these aspects.
