Ariana Grande Opens Up About Importance of Therapy, Saying It 'Saved Her Life'
Ariana Grande Says Therapy Saved Her Life 'So Many Times'—and Tons of People Can Relate
Ariana Grande has been through a lot in the past few months. In addition to the death of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller, she recently parted ways with former fiancé Pete Davidson after a very public, whirlwind romance. But instead of using her pain as an excuse to fly off the rails, Grande has handled it like a pro, and her fans have taken note.
After releasing a new self-empowerment breakup anthem “Thank You, Next,” one of her social media followers jokingly asked about her therapist and if they were “accepting new clients”—and Grande used it as an opportunity to get super serious about her mental health.
lmaoaoo this is funny as fuck but in all honesty therapy has saved my life so many times. if you’re afraid to ask for help, don’t be. u don’t have to be in constant pain & u can process trauma. i’ve got a lot of work to do but it’s a start to even be aware that it’s possible. 🖤 https://t.co/XiytR3xE0O— Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) November 5, 2019
“lmaoaoo this is funny as fuck but in all honesty therapy has saved my life so many times," she responded. “If you’re afraid to ask for help, don’t be. u don’t have to be in constant pain & u can process trauma. i’ve got a lot of work to do but it’s a start to even be aware that it’s possible.”
Grande’s fans rallied around the newly single singer, retweeting her response over 37,000 times. Many responded with words of support, while others praised her for opening up about her mental health in order to help others.
I’m so happy someone with your platform is so willing to talk so candidly about this. We don’t deserve you queen— jon (@prasejeebus) November 5, 2019
Some just agreed with her, sharing about their own mental health struggles and experiences with therapy.

This isn't the first time Grande has revealed she is a fan of therapy. In July interview withElle, she confessed that she has been in therapy for over a decade, since her parents got divorced. And, it's not always easy. “It’s work,” she said. “I’m a 25-year-old woman. But I’ve also spent the past handful of years growing up under very extraordinary circumstances."
In the interview she also detailed her experiences with post-traumatic stress, after the terrorist attack at her Manchester, England concert. "I would be in a good mood, fine and happy, and they would hit me out of nowhere," she said. "I've always had anxiety, but it had never been physical before. There were a couple of months straight where I felt so upside down."
Grande isn't the only Hollywood star who has opened up about their mental health for the greater good.
