Our Philosophy

Overcome

We focus on helping patients overcome rather than survive

We believe patients deserve better than to linger in symptom management forever. We help patients make breakthroughs that get them out of the symptom management cycle that’s all too commonplace in mental healthcare.

Community

We’re building a community with high standards of efficacy and compassion

Effective mental healthcare requires a coordinated effort from therapists, drug developers, and patients. We need shared data to drive insights and better treatment, so we’re working to build that community through partnerships and programs. We hold ourselves and our partners to the highest standards of efficacy and compassion so that we can progress the industry — and patient outcomes — faster.

Toolset

Next-Gen R&D

Developing best-in-class mental health care means more than clinical testing. In addition to conducting trials for the compounds we’re bringing to market, we’re also focused on next-gen research & development, comprehensive treatment programs and integrated toolsets that empower therapists to focus on what they do best.

People

We have the right people for the right reasons

Our interdisciplinary team of drug development veterans, savvy technologists, and mental health experts was purpose-built to tackle these challenges. With over a century of combined experience in product development and commercialization, we have the know-how and the heart to introduce a better approach to mental health.

Here to Stay

We’re built for operational agility and a long-run business model

This is a rapidly evolving space; we’re committed to building a business that becomes a long-lasting institution in effective mental health treatment — not a flash-in-the-pan startup that’s here today and gone tomorrow.

Patients-first

We’re a new kind of pharma company

We believe that, as a society, we’re at the start of a paradigm shift in mental health. We want to lead the way in doing it right. That means we’re community-focused, honest, and transparent. Together we can improve our collective mental health.
