Pop singer Ariana Grande is all set to give away $1 million worth of free therapy to her fans through the online portal ‘Better Help’, which provides mental health services. The singer made the announcement through her Instagram handle that she has joined hands with Better Help to provide free therapy for a month to her fans who cannot afford it.
Ariana Grande to give Away $1M in Free Therapy
The pop superstar said that those who are going through mental health issues and need counseling will be allowed to sign up at BetterHelp.com/Ariana, which would provide them with a licensed therapist for a month free of cost. However, after a month, those who want to continue with the Better Help service have an option to renew it with a discount of 15%.
Here is the announcement from the Grammy-winning star on her Instagram account.
“Thrilled to be working with @betterhelp to give away $1,000,000 of free therapy !”
She further wrote, “While acknowledging that therapy should not be for a privileged few but something everyone has access to, and acknowledging that this doesn’t fix that issue in the long run, i really wanted to do this anyway in hopes of inspiring you to dip a toe in, to feel okay asking for help, and to hopefully rid your minds of any sort of self judgement in doing so!”
The singer who recently celebrated her 28th birthday was also praised by Alessia Cara, Taraji P. Henson, Demi Lovato, and a few other celebrities for her incredible initiative to help people.
In her recent post, she wrote, “I so hope that this will be a helpful starting point and that you’ll be able to build space for this in your lives and continue!” She further added, “Healing is not linear or easy but you are worth the effort and time, I promise! thank you so much to @betterhelp and i can’t wait to do more work together.”
The singer back in 2018 shared her Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) experience with British Vogue post the bombing at her Manchester, England, concert in May 2017. The bombing took the lives of 22 people and left 1,000 injured. She even revealed her anxiety issues and how she fought with it. She said, “I’ve always had anxiety. I’ve never really spoken about it because I thought everyone had it, but when I got home from tour it was the most severe I think it’s ever been.”
