Jada Pinkett Smith Opens Up About Having Suicidal Thoughts 'Often'

Jada Pinkett Smith is opening up about mental health and making the brave reveal that she had, at one time in her life, had suicidal thoughts “often.”

The 46-year-old actress revealed on her Instagram account in a tribute to Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade, who both died from suicide last week.

“With the suicides of Kate and Anthony it brought up feelings of when I was in such despair and had considered the same demise…often. In the years I spent towards my healing, many moons ago, I realized the mind and heart can be extremely delicate without the foundation of a formidable spirit. What I eat, what I watch on TV, what music I listen to, how I care for my body, my spiritual practice, what people I surround myself with, the amount of stress I allow and so on… either contribute to or deteriorate my mental health. Mental health is a daily practice for me. It’s a practice of deep self-love,” Jada wrote. “May Kate and Anthony Rest In Peace. Many may not understand… but I do, and this morning I have the deepest gratitude that I pulled through.”
