Our Goal Is To Raise $10,000 In Order To Provide At-Least 25 Indivuduals With 1 Months Of Psychotherapy That Can’t Afford It
We want to help the individuals that are suffering NOW as research may be too late – potentially saving a life.
According to the American Psychological Association, about 75% of people who enter psychotherapy say they benefit from it, and research shows they’re better able to function in their day-to-day activities. The average cost of psychotherapy is $100 for a 1 hour session. Many individuals don’t have insurance to help cover the cost of treatment and while insurance may cover some of the cost of mental health treatment, a lot of mental health treatment providers are considered “out of network” which means insurance won’t cover the cost unless they are a “in network” treatment provider. Out of network treatment providers are known to be more available and there are more out there compared to in network treatment providers.
Benefits Of Psychotherapy
Help overcoming harmful behaviors
Therapists help you identify negative thought patterns and destructive behaviors, then teach you strategies to avoid them. This is particularly beneficial to people who are struggling with self-harm, eating disorders, or suicidal thoughts.
Help Identifying triggers
Many times, your negative behaviors are set off by triggers, or external circumstances that provoke unpleasant emotions or feelings. In therapy, you’ll learn to notice when you’re triggered and create strategies for controlling your response.
Learn healthy coping mechanisms
When faced with stressful situations, you may react in a way that’s ineffective or even dangerous. Replacing those reactions with healthy, positive coping mechanisms can help you manage your emotions and stay productive.
Psychotherapy helps you develop problem-solving skills, build your confidence, and become more self-aware. This encourages you to take personal responsibility for your actions and learn to manage your mental health issues, now and for the rest of your life.
