Three million US dollars! This is the sum that Ariana Grande is now making available to her fans to make it easier for them to access therapy.
Los Angeles (USA) – Three million US dollars (about 2.5 million euros)! That is the sum that Ariana Grande (28) is now available to its fans to facilitate their access to therapeutic treatments.
The “Thank U Next” singer shared this incredible news with her nearly 250 million followers on Instagram and in the same breath announced her collaboration with the US company “BetterHelp” – an online service that offers therapeutic services via the Internet, telephone and SMS.
At first there was talk of one million US dollars (about 840,000 euros) – but in the meantime “BetterHelp” has announced that the donation has been increased by a triple!
With this impressive gesture, the 28-year-old wants to encourage her fans to take care of their mental health – and at the same time advocate for the destigmatization of mental illness.

“Therapies should be accessible not only to privileged people, but to everyone,” Grande explains in her post, alludeing to the high cost of health care that makes it simply impossible for many Americans to seek therapeutic help.
Although she knows that she cannot solve the problem in the long term with this action, she wants to inspire her fans to try such a step without condemning herself.
“It’s okay to ask for help.”
Those who sign up for the offer will receive one month of therapy for free and can extend their offer for a second month through “BetterHelp” with a 15 percent discount.
“Healing is not a linear process, nor is it easy. But you and your health are worth this effort and time, I promise,” the singer concludes her contribution.
