Therapy is a magical, brilliant tool.
Not only is there professional consensus that it works, it’s helped a lot of people. Don’t believe us? Just take a gander at #TherapyHelped on Twitter.
The hashtag was created by actor Amir Talai last year during Mental Health Awareness Month, who said he wanted to normalize the experience of therapy, and was recently revived because praising therapy is evergreen (as it should be).
Testimonies from celebrities like “How To Get Away With Murder” stars Matt McGorry and Jack Falahee as well as others who have given the practice a go are proof there’s power in asking for help. Take a look below:
#TherapyHelped literally every aspect of my life. Therapy should be free for everyone, not just just to those who can afford it.
