You Should See Someone,
A Guide To Doing Therapy

A global HuffPost project on everything you ever wanted to know about therapy, whether you've been once or 100 times.

Mental health issues — especially among young people — are on the rise. We want to normalize therapy and show you how to do it within your own life and budget. That’s why we’ve launched “You Should See Someone,” a guide that will teach you everything you need to know about doing therapy. The series is packed with informative, no-B.S. stories on how to seek help and embrace it once you do. Because you SHOULD see someone if you need to ― and there shouldn’t be anything preventing you from that.
