We are proud to announce our friends at BetterHelp are donating a limited amount of vouchers for stroke survivors and their caregivers to access 6 months of talk therapy. As two organizations committed to improving the equitable access to healthcare for underserved communities, we are offering these vouchers to stroke survivors or their caregivers who are experiencing financial hardship.
