For Individuals and Support Networks
Vistagen’s core goal is to radically improve mental health worldwide. With that clear vision always in mind, and knowing that no mental health challenge is routine or resolvable with a “one-size-fits-all” solution, we are committed to advancing development of innovative drug candidates with the potential to go beyond the current standard of care for anxiety and depression.
In addition to our steadfast commitment to improving the standard of care for anxiety and depression, it is important that we work to raise awareness about the importance of mental health and provide education and information about resources for those seeking help. Equally important is our role in helping to eliminate the stigma of mental illness. No one is immune from the development of mental health challenges, especially anxiety and depression disorders. In a time when we are finding our communities struggling, it is important that we normalize finding help for mental illness and not allow a negative stigma to interfere with efforts to find available support and care. At Vistagen, we believe we can help by opening and expanding the conversation focused on rejecting the narrative developed by those who continue to stigmatize mental illness.
The following advocacy and nonprofit organization sites provide information, resources, and support for individuals grappling with mental health challenges, caretakers supporting those with mental health challenges and seeking support, as well as individuals committed to learning more about mental health and how they can help change the narrative.
