“Today, a record 53 million people in the U.S. alone are suffering from a mental illness, such as depression, addiction or PTSD, according to the CDC. With psychedelics-related legislation, investment, and health advancements announced nearly every day, there’s never been a better time to launch a resource like reMind,” said Sara Vaughn, VP, Brand Leader of reMind. “It’s a privilege to connect the brightest minds and most passionate professionals across the business of psychedelics.”
