"I believe every person deserves the opportunity to deal with their traumas."
– Dr. Dan Engle, Co-Founder & President
We aspire to be one of the catalyzers of a movement that will positively impact the lives of billions of people in the span of one generation.
We believe in the healing power of psychedelic medicines, and we believe that everyone who is ready and deemed appropriate for psychedelic therapy deserves access. Our mission is to eliminate the financial barriers to psychedelic therapy by providing supplemental funds to those in need.
We’re here to help the world heal, starting with addressing the global crisis in mental health by connecting people with the power and promise of psychedelic medicine. We need to make psychedelic therapy accessible, so more people can begin healing now.
All people are capable of evolving to access deeper levels of love, joy, peace and freedom. As their consciousness evolves, people can live their lives to the fullest and share their unique gifts with the world. We dedicate our financial and human capital to both for-profit and not-for-profit initiatives that support the evolution of consciousness.
We’re using the power of numbers to get true insight into psychedelic usage. Our methods range from academic research studies to polling and surveys so that we get a real picture of how these compounds can be used at scale. We publish our findings to inform public perception, education, policy and practices.

Kevin Cannella, LPC
Executive Director & Co-Founder
Kevin Cannella is a MAPS-trained psychedelic psychotherapist who has been using non-ordinary states to help himself and others heal for 15 years. His life’s work has been to help people align with their core values and transform.
His years of experience working with ketamine as a breakthrough tool for his clients’ healing have shown him the unprecedented power of psychedelics in the mental health arena. As a certified MDMA-assisted psychotherapist, Kevin looks forward to the near future when that medicine can be used in the mental healthcare space.
After 15 years of this type of work, Kevin has recognized the substantial financial obstacle that prevents most people from having access to the help that they need. His intention with Thank You Life is to create a fund that can open up this treatment to the masses.
