Your Trusted Infusion Center
For people with depression, even those who have previously resisted other types of treatment, ketamine infusion therapy may be a suitable aspect of a sophisticated care plan. Traditional antidepressants follow a familiar strategy; they increase the supply of a certain class of neurotransmitters within the synapses (the part of the neurons that send electrical or chemical signals). These synapses are thought to have a role in depression. Though the antidepressants may not work for some, they typically take a week or more to take effect, and some people who have previously resisted other forms of antidepressants may fail to respond to such treatment at all.

Sahana Yadhunanthanan, Chief Operating Officer
I studied sociology at the University of Warwick and had an understanding of human society and social problems within the society. I then studied law with a focus on human rights, and to that effect have been heavily involved in charities, helping victims of violence and human rights abuse. This gave me an insight into the prevalence of mental health illness in our society, and the toll it takes on young and old alike. When the opportunity arose at Save Minds, I embraced the challenge of reshaping the care, treatment, and support of mental health illness. I am passionate to change the stigma associated with mental health illness in our society, and to work towards making psychedelic treatment available throughout the United Kingdom. I want to enable society to accept the change of direction in treatment, and make people realise their potential and achieve their aims in life.
Raj Umayavan Yadhunanthanan, Vice President Business Development
I hold an LLB law degree and postgraduate diploma in Legal Practice Course with a commendation. I founded my very own business, the fitness technology company Rotator Shield at the age of 21 and have also been involved in the process of expansion at Save Minds Limited. The Rotators Shield brings a new dimension to fitness training, offering sports conditioning, physiotherapy, and rehabilitation. Whereas Save Minds Limited focuses purely on the mental rehabilitation. The key to a healthy body is not just fitness but also the mindset. It’s vital to ensure that your mind is healthy and rehabilitated. The treatment provided at Save Minds focuses on individuals suffering from PTSD, depression, and severe anxiety. Depression can be crippling. It’s important for the younger generation to realise how mental health is just as important as fitness. My goal is to engage both the young and the old to understand how mental fitness and physical fitness brought together creates a healthy body, instead of just one or the other.

Ketamine treatment has helped me so much with my depression. My therapist recommended it to me but I was skeptical at first just like everyone else. But there are a lot of benefits to ketamine, and now I'm not depressed anymore!
Time flies when the experience is great. I am so pleased with my ketamine treatment and how it has helped me overcome anxiety that has been present for years. It is an investment in myself to ensure that I can live out life without being paralyzed by worry.
Ketamine treatment was amazing, my PTSD symptoms have never been better. I know that it's not for everyone and there are some side effects but for me it changed everything. More energy, more clarity of mind and the best part is how much happier I am.
