The Outsmart was founded out of love. 

Shannon Sanguinetti, Founder


Shannon is a former cognitive and behavioral neuroscience researcher who has been investigating cognition and behavior, as it relates to stress since 2005. 

"Ever since I was young, people have confided some of their deepest and darkest secrets in me. Secrets like self-mutilation, obsessive-compulsive disorder, eating disorders, mental health decline, learning disabilities, sexual assault, verbal abuse, drug use and more. I didn't understand why they told me at the time but was always there to listen. Then, when I was a teenager, my mother became depressed and suicidal. As I watched her rapid decline, I couldn't help but search for ways to help. It compelled me to investigate the biological root causes of  mental ailments."

The Outsmart was founded to give that knowledge back to the world for a better tomorrow. 


"I truly want and believe that every human on the planet should have this information."
