AceShowbiz - Ariana Grande is donating $1 million (£720,000) to help those in need get free therapy sessions.
The pop superstar has partnered with BetterHelp to provide mental health services, and she's kicking off the campaign with a big handout.
"thrilled to be working with @betterhelp to give away $1,000,000 of free therapy! 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 "7 Rings" singer wrote on Instagram on Tuesday, June 29.
"i hope that you'll take advantage of this opportunity and go to betterhelp.com/ariana to be matched with a licensed therapist for one free month. after that, you'll have the choice to renew and continue."
"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! thank you so much to @betterhelp and i can't wait to do more work together."
Ariana herself has been open about her mental health issues. Back in 2018, she candidly told British Vogue, "My anxiety has anxiety… 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."
