2024 Community Advisory Board: Clinicians and Thought Leaders Shaping The Future of Mental Health

Written by


A community offers more value to clinicians when thought leaders from different backgrounds join the discussion.

That’s why we’re excited to usher in 2024 with some familiar and new members of our Community Advisory Board (CAB)!

The Community Advisory Board (CAB) comprises a dynamic and diverse group of clinician leaders passionate about advancing mental health treatment and research.

“Clinicians on the front line of innovative mental health care need a literal seat at the table when we design the technology tools needed to power their practices. The CAB does just that. We are so excited about the collaborations it will foster to amplify Osmind’s mission to empower clinicians, scientists and technologists to move mental health care forward.” -Carlene MacMillan, MD, Chief Medical Officer at Osmind

Mental healthcare takes a village.

Psychiatry stands at a pivotal point with clinical trials advancing promising new treatments. The stakes are too high not to unite the field's greatest minds in an effort to:

  • Create technology for mental health clinicians, with input from clinicians.
  • Foster open discussion about best practices, and share them with the community.
  • Overcome hurdles to starting and growing a private practice.
  • Dispel myths and tame stigma surrounding mental health care.

The CAB brings clinicians together for a common purpose, with backgrounds ranging from general psychiatry to interventional psychiatry, and ketamine-assisted psychotherapy.

Let’s meet our 2024 CAB members:
