Our Vision

The MIND Foundation envisions a healthier, more connected world through evidence-based, safe, and legal applications of the psychedelic experience.

We support and conduct high-quality psychedelic research.

We translate science into everyday language to support people in living healthy and meaningful lives.

We work with policymakers to create safe and legal environments for the psychedelic experience.

We train professionals and educate the public on psychedelic treatments, integration, evidence-based harm reduction, and human development.

We encourage communities to build beneficial, knowledge-based, and risk-aware attitudes around psychedelics.

The MIND Foundation is a European non-profit registered under German law (HRB 220247 B). Revenue from the  MIND Academy cannot be extracted by individuals. It is fully used to support the organization’s public benefit purposes and reduce our dependence on donations for core activities – providing us and you with the opportunity to use donations for research and social projects.
