Dr. Jon Petrick Announces Candidacy for Assembly District 21, Advocating for Alternative Medicines, and Mental Health

Henderson, NV - January 5, 2021 – Dr. Jon Petrick, a seasoned physician with over 25 years of experience, officially announces his candidacy for Assembly District 21. Dr. Petrick brings a passion for advocating alternative medicines, including cannabis and psychedelics, to address the pressing mental health crisis affecting Nevadans.

In a recent speech, Dr. Petrick expressed his enthusiasm for Nevada's positive steps in recognizing the medicinal benefits of cannabis. He aims to broaden these efforts to include alternative psychedelic medicines such as Ketamine, Mushrooms, Ayahuasca, and other natural treatments.

Acknowledging the mental health challenges faced by millions of Americans, Dr. Petrick cited Forbes Health, stating that 21% of U.S. adults experienced a mental health condition in 2020. He emphasized the need for accessible, lifesaving medicines for individuals grappling with severe mental health conditions, including bipolar disorder, severe anxiety, eating disorders, and more.

Dr. Petrick passionately advocates for expanding current legislation to address the mental health crisis, particularly considering the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. He highlighted that mental health conditions coupled with substance abuse affected an estimated 105,000,000 U.S. adults in 2020.

Notably, Dr. Petrick draws attention to the alarming mental health statistics within the veteran community. In 2019, 15.3% of U.S. veterans experienced mental health conditions, including PTSD, depression, or substance abuse. The physician-turned-candidate emphasizes that on average, 23 veterans take their lives every day, surpassing casualties in combat.

Addressing the rising concern of youth mental health, Dr. Petrick highlighted the tragic fact that suicide became the second leading cause of death for U.S. children ages 10 to 14 in 2020. He stressed the profound economic impact of depression and anxiety on the global economy.

Dr. Petrick's candidacy is fueled by a commitment to advocating for those facing chronic illnesses and mental health crises. His campaign focuses on promoting initiatives that not only broaden current laws but also create a comprehensive approach to mental health.

"I am PRO-business, PRO-alternative medicines, and a staunch advocate for the health and happiness of our community," Dr. Petrick emphasized. He envisions ushering in a new era where psychedelic medicines contribute to the well-being of countless individuals, mirroring Nevada's forward-thinking approach to cannabis.

Dr. Jon Petrick invites the community to join him in creating lasting, positive changes for thousands of Nevadans. As a candidate for Assembly District 21, he is committed to legislating for a healthier and happier Nevada.
