VANCOUVER, BC, Jan. 12, 2021 /CNW/ – Mind Cure Health Inc. (CSE: MCUR) (OTCQB: MCURF) (FRA: 6MH) (“Mind Cure” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the signing of a non-binding letter of intent (the “LOI“) for strategic investment and commercial cooperation with ATMA Journey Centers Inc. (“ATMA“), a Calgary-based organization. ATMA is the first commercial treatment center in Canada to announce providing psychedelic-assisted therapy for a section 56 exempt patient. The LOI is intended to help Mind Cure secure an equity position within ATMA, empowering the Company with access to a global release strategy for iSTRYM, as well as international locations for translational research on novel molecules and treatment protocols.
“ATMA’s clinicians possess a proven track record of advocacy and innovation driving toward the therapeutic benefits of psychedelic medicine for patients in the treatment of mental health and wellness. Mind Cure is extremely excited to join ATMA in the renaissance that is disrupting mental health care by partnering with one of the pioneers in the therapeutic psychedelics industry,” said Kelsey Ramsden, President & CEO, Mind Cure. “With Mind Cure’s therapeutic tool, iSTRYM, along with ATMA’s pivotal achievement as the care provider for Canada’s most recent section 56(1) exempt patient, mental health care in Canada is making history. We are thrilled to work with the best-in-class to drive our focus on accelerating our research and technology platforms.”
Mind Cure’s partnership with ATMA is an exciting opportunity for researchers and therapists to participate in each of Mind Cure’s research programs focused on pain, neuroregeneration, migraines, and cluster headaches. The proposed investment will facilitate the syndication of Mind Cure’s psychedelic drug protocols and the use of Mind Cure’s proprietary technology, iSTRYM, to optimize treatment for ATMA clients.
The deployment of capital will also advance speed and scale for data enrichment of iSTRYM, providing the AI-driven platform with access to patient data as ATMA targets domestic and international healing and treatment centers.
“Psilocybin-assisted therapy offers healing and understanding that is unmatched by traditional methods. Patients dealing with end-of-life anxiety, pain, depression, trauma, and addiction have been at the mercy of ineffective and underwhelming treatments for much too long. The resources are here, and we are extremely grateful to be at the frontlines of this world-changing, innovative, and extremely alleviating solution, to help bring peace to sufferers,” said David Harder, co-CEO, ATMA Journey Centers Inc. “We are witnessing an inflection point for mental health treatment as the commitment to wellness in Canada takes a huge step forward.”
Pursuant to the LOI, the parties intend to negotiate the terms of definitive agreements (the “Definitive Agreements“), which will provide for, among other things an initial $500,000 investment by Mind Cure in ATMA, participation by Mind Cure in ATMA’s future financings, and the exclusive use of iSTRYM throughout ATMA’s business. There can be no assurance that the Definitive Agreements will be entered into or that the investment or commercial transactions will be completed on the terms proposed in the LOI or at all.
