Ariana Grande has talked about changes in her mental health and the importance of attending therapy after the Manchester bombing terrorist attack.
In an interview in 2018, “I’ve always been anxious, but I didn’t talk openly because everyone thought so. But by the end of the 2017 world tour, I had a lot of anxiety disorders. It was getting worse. ” In addition, it seems that the influence of mental health was also appearing on the physical side, such as becoming stuffy.

Ariana, who is keenly aware of the importance of therapy, has started social contribution activities so that as many people as possible can get the opportunity.
In July 2021, he donated $ 2 million to a service called “Better Help,” which provides online therapy, and said, “Don’t criticize yourself for having to ask for help.” Send the message.
And the other day, on October 10th, World Mental Health Day, we donated another 5 million dollars (about 566 million yen). With this, “Better Help” will be able to receive therapy for free for a month.
“We’re offering $ 5 million in free therapy with BetterHelp for World Mental Health Day. We wanted to offer this little opportunity because we’re still in a society where we don’t have much access to information about mental health. This is someone’s healing. I hope it will be an opportunity for you. ”
