who should consider it

not sure if anonymous support groups are for you?

This is a different approach to online mental health, so we understand if you’re hesitant to try it. If it’s helpful, we find these types of people will benefit from it the most.
People totally new to therapy who want to get a feel for what it could be like and avoid expensive upfront commitments
People who have some experience with therapy, but want to feel connected to others with similar concerns and experiences
People who are feeling increased levels of stress as a result of world events and uncontrollable situations

why we’re doing this

Investing in our mental health is often put on the backburner, because it’s too expensive or too inconvenient. But with the COVID-19 global pandemic, stress and anxiety are becoming everyday issues for millions of us. Hims & Hers is committed to helping people deal with their stress and anxiety, which is why they’re now offering anonymous support groups. Our mission has always been to help people handle their hard-to-talk-about issues—and offering accessible mental health products from home is yet another example of that.
