CRISIS ALERT: THERAPY FOR SURVIVORS OF LAS VEGAS ATTACK
Thero is currently working with our partners to coordinate a therapeutic response to the tragic shooting in Las Vegas. Visit www.thero.org/VegasStrong to search for pro bono therapy for this attack. Visit www.thero.org/signup if you’re a licensed provider and want to offer help.
What is it?
Thero.org is a non-profit community of treatment providers who are building a national mental health resource directory. The Affordable Therapy Project is a collaborative group of organizations that coordinates mental health professionals to provide pro bono sessions for survivors of national crises, victims of natural disasters, and high-risk communities.
How it Works
Any licensed therapist, psychologist, counselor, or psychiatrist can join Thero and list their business in our directory for free. When Providers want to offer free sessions for a specific cause or group they can let people know by selecting the “Pro Bono” option. Anyone looking for free therapy for a specific issue can search the Thero Directory for help.
Why It’s Important
We must make it easy for mental health professionals to connect with those in need. This year we’ve seen many national crises and natural disasters. It can feel overwhelming and often there isn’t an easy way to organize a response. Through this program we make it easy for local mental health professionals to support the causes and communities that matter most to them.
Therapy is expensive and the majority of therapists, psychologists, and psychiatrists do not accept health insurance. Some treatment providers reserve space in their schedule for low-fee or no-fee sessions. We want more providers to offer Pro Bono services and will support them when they do.
Free Sessions For:
Active Duty Military
Experiences of Domestic Violence
Experiences of Racism
Exposure to Police Violence
Natural Disaster Survivors
Opioid Crisis Victims
Sexual Assault Survivors
Survivors of Las Vegas Attack
How to Start
We believe that if more people got quality mental health care the world would be a better place. Through this program we make it easy for local mental health professionals to support the causes and communities that matter most to them.
Licensed professionals who are logged into Thero can add their list to our directory.
