Our Purpose, Our Vision

Vistagen Therapeutics’ core goal is to radically improve mental health and well-being worldwide. To that end, Vistagen is developing an innovative pipeline of CNS medications with the potential to establish new standards of care, safety, and effectiveness in the treatment of a variety of serious anxiety, depression and other CNS disorders that are disrupting the lives of tens of millions of people around the world.

Beyond our drug development expertise, we strive to improve the mental health care ecosystem with better outcomes for patients, caregivers, advocates and communities. Given the significant unmet needs in our target indications and our innovative CNS pipeline candidates, we are committed to developing new products that are designed to make a meaningful difference in the way individuals manage their disorders.

Our Core Values

At Vistagen, we are committed to driving improvement and innovation in the care of patients suffering from Central Nervous System (CNS) disorders. In this pursuit, we conduct ourselves with integrity, compassion, teamwork, and excellence while on our journey to change the way we approach mental healthcare.


We believe that the route of our efforts is guided by integrity and the drive to do the right thing. At Vistagen we are uncompromising in our mission to better the lives of those suffering from CNS disorders, and we emphasize the need to put patients first in order to develop a new generation of medicines that go beyond the current standard of care.


Compassion means "to suffer with," and it combines sympathy with an active response. Our team includes people who have had a close experience with CNS Disorders and believe in taking an active step towards progressing the care of the community. Our compassion for patient care is what motivates us to work towards a world no longer gripped by anxiety, fear, or depression.


Effective change cannot be brought on by one but takes a team of collaborators working toward the same goal. At Vistagen our team believes that nothing is as great as what we can achieve together, and we work to foster a collaborative culture aimed at putting people first.


At Vistagen we believe that excellence is the gradual result of always striving to do better. With excellence at the center of everything we do, we can drive mental healthcare innovation that has the potential to go beyond the current standard of care for millions of people suffering from anxiety, depression and other CNS disorders.

These core values guide our internal processes and define our mission to radically improve mental health and well-being worldwide.
