- Integrity, trust, safety, and accessibility are at the core of Psychable’s mission
- The Psychable platform is the first of its kind, and everything on the site its 100% legal

- As entrepreneurs in psychedelics, our job is to be tech-enabled healers

- Sustainability, reciprocity, advocacy with respect to indigenous communities has been built into Psychable’s DNA from day one
- There haven’t been any major innovations in mental healthcare in 5 decades – it’s time for a paradigm shift

- Psychedelics open us up to a very delicate psychic space and we need trained psychedelic practitioners that can provide true safety
- Jemie strongly recommends The Fireside Project, a free hotline that provides real-time psychedelic support
- You need clear values and you need to work with people who embody clear values – this is critical for a company’s success
