Welcome to the Osmind Community!

We have compiled resources to help people during COVID. For a list of ketamine and TMS treatment centers and their COVID operating status, please click the “Directory” tab at the top bar. Please also see our articles - “Mental Health During COVID” and “Ketamine Treatment During COVID.”

The Osmind Community is a safe space for people who have depression and/or other mental health issues. It is also a safe space for people interested in mental health care, psychedelic medicine (including ketamine, esketamine, MDMA, psilocybin, and more), brain stimulation, and other innovative treatments for mental health disorders.

This community is a forum with mutual support, positivity, empathy. Members are all deeply valued and enrich one another’s lives as we pool together our strength, perspectives, experiences, and knowledge.

We invite you to contribute your ideas, questions, and thoughts. You can ask for support when you need it, and provide support to others when they need it.

  • Official Wikis and articles are written by the Osmind team and reviewed by a team of medical doctors (MDs) from top academic medical centers. We are dedicated to providing accurate, unbiased, evidence-based information in an understandable manner.
  • The Collaborative Wikis are articles collectively written by Osmind Community Members like you! They provide a way for everyone to contribute their own valuable experiences and perspectives. We all benefit by coming together and sharing our knowledge. We hope you enjoy reading these and contribute your valuable thoughts as well :slight_smile:
  • The community often features special guests who join the Osmind Community to answer questions, do Ask-Me-Anythings (AMAs), and write content. These guests include esteemed researchers, physicians, advocates, authors, community-builders, and more who are passionate about mental health, psychedelic medicine, brain stimulation, and more.
