For many years, people have been using psychedelic drugs to help them with their mental health challenges such as depression. 

One of the celebrities who has been vocal about how psychedelics helped her beat depression is Jada Pinkett Smith. 

"You get to a place where you are blocked by something, whether it's a trauma or your emotions or ego, not being able to express yourself. Psychedelics are a way to tear down that wall and see what is beyond it. Doing it guided with people who are professionals really increases the chances of having that mystical experience," Jada said on 'Red Table Talk'.

The American actress reportedly also introduced psychedelics to her children. This was revealed by her son, Jaden, in an interview with   Psychedelic Science

"I think it was my mom, actually, that was really the first one to make that step for the family," Jaden said during the interview.

"It was just her for a really, really long time and then eventually it just trickled and evolved, and everybody found it in their own ways," he added.

Jaden went as far as explaining how psychedelicss helped improve his relationship with his siblings, Willow and half-brother Trey. 

"Siblings can argue so much and fight so much, and lord knows me and my siblings have done so much of that in the past.

"But the level of love and empathy that I can feel for them inside of the (psychedelic) experiences and outside of the experiences has been something that's profound and beautiful."

Although psychedelics are used as a treatment for depression, anxiety, and substance-related disorders, they are not to be taken without consulting a health professional.

According to National Institution of Health, 'people who take psychedelic or dissociative drugs may experience short-term side effects such as a headache, abdominal pain, nausea or vomiting, high blood pressure, rapid heartbeat, trembling, and diarrhea'.
