Feeling empowered by the growing public support and diminishing social stigma, a steady stream of celebrities are opening up about mental health and the positive effects of psychedelics on their lives. And an increasing number of mainstream organizations are now covering psychedelics.
ESPN is the latest to join the movement, with “Peace of Mind”, a new ESPN E60 documentary looking at athletes using psychedelics for healing.
ESPN followed a small group of retired professional athletes as they participated in an intensive psilocybin retreat in Jamaica (where psilocybin treatment is legal). The documentary shows how many of these athletes came out of the treatment with positive results they haven’t felt in years.
See the trailer below.
Peace of Mind Debuts Saturday, April 22, at 11:30 a.m. ET on ESPN, and streaming on ESPN+
