Founder & Chief Executive Officer
Professional hockey player, two-time Stanley Cup winner, passionate advocate for athletic, veteran, TBI and mental health communities.
Wesana takes an integrated approach to designing new mental health care paradigms for today and revolutionary treatments for tomorrow.
Mental health need not be a mystery for patients. Remote patient tracking via biometrics and self-reported data demystifies one’s current condition so it can be tracked and improved upon.
Innovative medicines offer a potential opportunity to increase effectiveness and decrease side effects for key conditions. Patients deserve the chance to explore trailblazing solutions based on rigorous data-driven analysis of efficacy and safety.
A rigorous collection of data demonstrates efficacy and scientifically provable safety, leading to widespread insurance coverage and regulatory approval.
Mental health successes are not created via a one-size-fits-all approach because everyone is unique. Resilience, healing, and hope depend on individually tailored treatment.
Remote patient monitoring creates a holistic view for both patient and caregiver, positively impacting treatment.
Committed to respecting the challenges of each individual and the ongoing partnership between our team, our patients, their families, and caregivers.
We are especially focused on aiding veterans, athletes, and Indigenous communities who have traditionally used psychedelics for health goals.
We base our approach on existing data that is constantly refined. We validate, measure, and offer quality care using promising multidisciplinary innovations.
Daniel Carcillo earned the nickname “car bomb” during his 10-year NHL career for his explosive playing on the ice. Known for protecting his teammates, Carcillo helped Chicago win two Stanley Cup championships with the Blackhawks—but at great personal cost. He suffered seven concussions and was eventually diagnosed with post-concussion syndrome and traumatic brain injury (TBI). At his lowest point, Carcillo couldn’t even look at his phone due to light sensitivity and wanted nothing to do with his infant son.
A hockey champion in grave need of off-ice help, he found it in a remarkable place: psychedelic medicine. Reflecting on the impact this emerging medicine had on his life, he saw a chance to help others realize the same benefits. He built a team of medical experts to provide world-class treatments and perform trailblazing research in psychedelic medicine. As Carcillo says: “A lot of TBI patients want to become the person that we were before the injury, but I’m trying to show people that you can actually get better.”
The Wesana team is committed to achieving this goal by improving mental health outcomes—one person at a time.
