Ariana Grande is doing her bit to support people who might be seeking therapy but can’t afford it.
The singer has announced on her socials that she’s partnering up with mental health support organisation Better Help to give away $1,000,000 worth of free therapy sessions to fans.
“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,” she shared on Insta.

“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! Healing is not linear or easy but you are worth the effort and time, I promise!”
Those who sign up will receive one month of therapy for free and will be given an option to renew through Better Help with a discount of 15 percent for the second month.
Mental health support is a cause extremely close to Ari’s own heart. She suffered PTSD in the aftermath of the Manchester Arena attack in 2017.
The event saw a suicide bomber detonate a homemade bomb as people were leaving her concert, killing 22 people and injuring 59 others.
Ari often credits therapy with helping her through the trauma.
