Making 1:1 Talk Therapy more Accessible
Thank you so much! I thought I was alone, but when I reached out, I found help! It means so much to me to know that I'm not alone going through this.
How often are applications received?
Applications are received on a rolling basis. Though you can apply at any time, scholarships are awarded on a monthly basis.
Who is THERAPY FOR ALL for?
Even those whose care was covered in part by insurance reported concerns about continuing to afford it. The Big Silence strives to make resources more accessible and through "THERAPY FOR ALL" will provide support to those in financial need.
We’re especially hoping to help people that are in mental health deserts who struggle to find any mental health care access at all.
How many sessions do the scholarships cover?
Scholarships cover 2 sessions per month. Any sessions outside of the 2 are at the responsibility of the grantee.
What is the length of the scholarship?
At this time, the scholarship award is for two months (up to 4 sessions total). As funding for the program grows we will reassess. Recipients will be given the option to fill out an evaluation at the end of the scholarship period, and if completed they can reapply for funding.
Can The Big Silence match me with a therapist?
While The Big Silence cannot match you with a therapist, we have put together a list of TBS connected therapists, in effort to assist you in finding the right match.
Are we required to select a therapist from The Big Silence’s approved list?
The Big Silence has created the team of mental health professionals’ database as a resource to make the search easier, but you can work with any therapist you choose, as long as they are interested in working with us through this program.
When will grantees be notified?
Grantees are selected on a monthly basis and will be notified one (1) month in advance.
Is there a “by-date”?
Once scholarships are awarded, grantees have 30 days to schedule their first appointment.
How much is a voucher worth?
Each voucher is worth up to $120.
Where can I use my scholarship?
Scholarships can be used with any therapist in the United States that opts to accept them. The Big Silence will pay the therapist directly.
Can scholarships be used for more than one therapist?
Yes, the scholarship can be used for more than one therapist. We understand that the first try may not be the perfect fit, and hope that you will not give up in your search to find the right person.
