Support in the Wake of Astroworld

By BetterHelp Editorial Team|Updated July 8, 2022

About the Initiative

Following the tragic event at Astroworld, Travis Scott's team reached out to us with an initiative to cover the cost of therapy for those who were impacted. As a mission-driven organization, we are proud to help whenever we can. With over 20,000 therapists nationwide, we are uniquely qualified to meet the needs of large numbers of people when tragedies like this occur. We have previously provided free support to those who were impacted by Hurricane Dorian, the El Paso shooting, the California Wildfires, the evacuations from Afghanistan, and other events in which mental health support was needed quickly on a large scale.

Due to the sensitive nature of this tragic event, we wanted to provide more clarification on how BetterHelp’s support will be delivered through this initiative. The goal of the information below is to provide transparency and clarity on this initiative so we can effectively support the individuals affected by the tragic event at Astroworld.
