Introducing the New Mindbloom Brand
A New Day for Mental Health
- Today Mindbloom is launching a new brand and website to celebrate real client stories.
- As the leading provider of ketamine therapy, we want to highlight the tens of thousands of people who have found relief from suffering through our program.
- If you or someone you love is struggling with anxiety or depression, we encourage you to see if Mindbloom might be a good fit.
Today is an exciting new day for Mindbloom.
As the world's largest provider of ketamine therapy, we have completed over 125,000 guided sessions and transformed thousands of peoples’ lives. Earlier this year, we released the world's largest peer-reviewed study of ketamine therapy and showed its effectiveness treating anxiety and depression symptoms. Yet the average person still does not know someone personally whose life has been transformed by ketamine therapy.
That is why we are so excited to be introducing the new Mindbloom brand — a brand built on real clients and real stories. Stories about hope, healing, and transformation.
At Mindbloom we have been profoundly touched by stories our clients share with us.
Stories like this one from Mindbloom client Alan:
“I had tried traditional therapy and anti-depressants and I wasn’t getting anywhere. Doing Mindbloom gave me real insight into my mind and the root of my anxiety, depression, and PTSD. After treatment I am now more able to seek out and reestablish connections with friends and family instead of closing everybody out. I thought I was broken. Now, the light inside me is growing stronger every day.” — Alan, 52, software engineer in California
Stories of relief like Molly’s:
“One of the most surprising parts of my experience with Mindbloom was how quickly I felt a shift in my anxiety and depression. Over ten years of anxiety has finally started to recede. Because of this medicine, I’m able to shift my thought patterns, dwell less on limitations, and spend more time celebrating the present. My physical symptoms of anxiety are less intense and appear less often. I can see a light shining at the end of the tunnel.” — Molly, 39, New York
Stories of triumph like Lesa’s:
“Mindbloom helped me get through one of the hardest times of my life. I have struggled with severe depression most of my life, and I was shocked to see how easy it was to separate myself from that heavy burden during my Mindbloom sessions. Every session made me feel more confident in myself, like a sort of self-esteem boost. The biggest improvement I've seen is more overall ability to handle stress and difficult emotions. Now I am able to apply the insights I gained during my Mindbloom sessions to my day to day. It has helped me so much!” — Lesa, 32, social worker in New York
Our new brand is putting real stories like these front and center. We have also updated our brand and website to better express the hope and healing reflected in these client stories.
While taking the first step might be daunting, nobody should have to suffer because of their mental health. If you or someone you love is struggling with anxiety or depression, we encourage you to see if Mindbloom might be a good fit.
It’s a new day for mental health and the future looks bright.

Ketamine has been reported to produce issues including, but not limited to, those listed below. However, lasting adverse side-effects are rare when medical protocols are carefully followed.
While ketamine has not been shown to be physically addictive, it has been shown to cause moderate psychological dependency in some recreational users.
- In rare cases, frequent, heavy users have reported increased frequency of urination, urinary incontinence, pain urinating, passing blood in the urine, or reduced bladder size
- Ketamine may worsen problems in people with schizophrenia, severe personality disorders, or other serious mental disorders.
- Users with a personal or family history of psychosis should be cautious using any psychoactive substance, including ketamine, and discuss potential risks with your MindBloom® clinician before proceeding with treatment.
- The dissociative effects of ketamine may increase patient vulnerability and the risk of accidents.
To promote positive outcomes and ensure safety, follow these ketamine treatment guidelines:
- Do not operate a vehicle (e.g., car, motorcycle, bicycle) or heavy machinery following treatment until you’ve had a full night of sleep
- Refrain from taking benzodiazepines or stimulants for 24 hours prior to treatment
- Continue to take antihypertensive medication as prescribed
- Avoid hangovers or alcohol intake
- Refrain from consuming solid foods within 3 hours prior to treatment and liquids within 1 hour prior to treatment
- Ketamine treatment should never be conducted without a monitor present to ensure your safety
