Our Values

Conscious Care

We take every action in service of the ultimate goal: to heal mental health disorders so that everyone, everywhere can live a more fulfilled life.

We strive for equitable patient access, working to make our therapies accessible to and reimbursable for everyone.

We also care for ourselves and our colleagues, maximizing our energy through rest, renewal and rhythm.

Collaborative Innovation

We nurture curiosity and interdisciplinary collaborations, looking for areas across the company where our expertise could add value.

We are committed to the scientific truth-seeking method, testing and refining our hypotheses to deliver new treatment options to patients.

We take full advantage of our diversity of backgrounds, personalities, cultures, and experiences to challenge conventional wisdom.

Bold Entrepreneurship

We are made up of small, agile teams of experts, each empowered to do what we do best.

We are loosely coupled but tightly aligned: we are in step on our objectives and values, and give freedom for decentralized decision making.

We are fast and focused, striving for excellence over perfection, engaging in first principles thinking to responsibly accelerate innovation for patients.

Radical Responsibility

We take full responsibility, communicate clearly and intentionally, and stick to agreements. We don’t gossip or blame.

We model grit and tenacity, owning our failures and focusing on what they can teach us as an individual and as a team.

We foster a growth mindset by giving and expecting candid feedback, delivered with empathy at the right moment.
