PsiloTec Health Solutions Inc. (“PsiloTec” or the “Company”), a mental healthcare and psychedelic therapy focused innovator, today announced rebranding and launch as Zylorion Health (“Zylorion” or the “Company”). The Company has been operating as PsiloTec since its inception, and the new brand and corporate logo comes at an important inflection point in the development of the Company and execution of the business strategy.
“Our vision of achieving meaningful improvements in the lives
of the estimated 971 million people globally experiencing some
form of mental health condition, is becoming clear as the
promise of psychedelics and enhanced therapies comes to life.
Zylorion, derived from the words ‘Zeal’ – to approach the
cause with enthusiasm and ‘Orion’ as the rising star, is the
quintessential name to guide us on our journey.”
– Dr. Peter Silverstone, CEO & Director
The Zylorion name is rooted in the Company’s uncompromising commitment to growth and the opportunity to provide relief, restore and heal. We are bound by the convergence of inspirational new compounds, proprietary therapy programs, rigorous application of scientific approaches, and leading technologies, that together have potential to revolutionize the treatment of mental health conditions. The rebrand was carefully arrived at to reflect the vision of the Company and its mission to work collaboratively with practitioners to transform mental health care and address the growing crisis around the world.
“The need for mental health support and treatment is absolutely overwhelming and of course, it’s being made worse in the COVID-19 environment”, commented Dr. Silverstone. “It is our goal to be an industry leading provider of psychedelic-based therapies that are developed through clinical trials with proven efficacy.”
PsiloTec has previously announced that the Company has entered into a non-binding letter of intent (the “LOI”) with Michichi Capital Corp. (TSXV:MCCP.P) (“Michichi”) to complete a business combination or other similarly structured transaction (the “Proposed Transaction”) which will constitute a reverse take-over of Michichi.

There can be no assurance that the Proposed Transaction will be completed on the terms proposed or at all.
