Psychedelics Anonymous is a utility-based profile image NFT collection that was minted on the Ethereum blockchain in December 2021 with the goal of supporting people combating mental health issues.
Psychedelics Anonymous is an NFT project that brings together eye-catching utility-based PFPs, enigmatic narrative surrounding the entire ecosystem, groundbreaking P2E dynamics, and much more. Psychedelics Anonymous is a grouping of four distinct Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT), each with a supply of 9,595 tokens, totaling 38,380 tokens, established by team lead Lewis Gale. The Psychedelics Anonymous Genesis PFP, IRL Pshycedelics Anonymous Pass, Metaverse Psychedelics Anonymous Pass, and Component #1 are the four NFTs included in the collection. 
Joshua Connelly, the team's lead artist, designed the Psychedelics Anonymous Genesis PFP, which will give token users unique access to limited-run products in the physical world as well as wearables in the metaverse. The genesis NFT will also provide holders with access to the project's support services, which include performance, business, and mental health services. 
Access to VIP metaverse and IRL areas, as well as staking and future decentralized autonomous organization allocations, will be granted as part of the genesis. The genesis NFT is the most prestigious degree of Psychedelics Anonymous membership according to the team.
In this enigmatic metaverse that has been masterfully constructed by the Psychedelics Anonymous team, each holder's Genesis PFP will always be a reflection of the owner. "We are the Night," is the slogan of this new universe, which has been buzzing constantly on Twitter for a while. Among other things, the idea promises professional therapy for its community, fitness clubs, IRL and metaverse events, and gear. Of course, donations to groups that provide psychedelic-assisted therapy are a huge part of it. 
“We Are the Night”
"We are the night," is their motto, and they have a page on their website that has a mysterious, sad feel to it:
Beneath the daylight where we sleep, the orchestral avalanche of passing cars and the mechanical grind of the system that enslaves has left us haunted and empty.As we push and pull, we rise and fall into the crowded noise like static - the constant clouding of our sunshine minds.Mute days descend into tired months - the repetition of existence. Only the shroud of night offers salvation, the blackened blanket staving off the apocalypse of isolation.At the zero hour, we gather in the darkness searching inner paths to outer worlds - an escape from the counterfeit dreams of our clockwork lives. Howling like wolves in a synchronous serenade, we seek out the machines - the ghostly shrines.We are waking up.
Psychedelics Anonymous is interesting in that it is offering four different kinds of NFTs made up of (1) Genesis and (3) Utility NFTs:
- 9,595 Genesis Profile Picture (PFP) NFTs
- 9,595 In-Real-Life (IRL) Passes
- 9,595 Metaverse Passes
- 9,595 Component #1s
On OpenSea, each of these NFTs will have its own collection. The community cited Bored Ape Yacht Club understanding they required a bigger community and then introducing the Mutant Ape Yacht Club Psychedelics Anonymous, who then separated their collection into four distinct categories.of Non-fungible tokens (NFT), totaling 38,380 NFTs to increase scalability. 
The community also has a Metaverse pass vs. an in-real-life pass since some members may be in rural locales and so don't require the in-real-life pass, while others in big metropolitan areas may benefit from the in-real-life pass.
