Are there financial aid/student discounts for Betterhelp?

I am currently a student and have a very low income. I was curious if Betterhelp offers a sliding scale or discounts for students, and how this compares to the general price

Better Help's Client Success Team doesn't just talk the talk, they actually follow through on their promises, too. I've had several clients who have experienced financial hardship during their Better Help subscription, many to the point of strongly considering canceling their subscription. The vast majority of my clients who have reached out to Better Help to discuss payment difficulties have been able to reach a financial agreement that allows them to continue therapy at a discounted price. These clients have said that it's really easy to talk to and work with Better Help's client success team. Better Help truly is really great at making therapy affordable for everyone, especially people facing difficult financial strains. It's one of the many perks of the platform!
