Pineapple Support, the adult industry’s leading mental health nonprofit, will host a free, online support group with a focus on helping performers to better navigate different types of relationships. The six-week support group, “Navigating Relationships” will be led by Pineapple therapist Rachael Farina and will start on Tuesday, May 31st at 3pm EST.
“Throughout the course of this group, we’ll address various topics, such as conflict resolution, communication skills and setting and maintaining boundaries with others,” says licensed Pineapple therapist Rachael Farina. “We’d encourage attendees to try to attend all sessions, so we can maintain consistency for everyone. If there are any important relationships in your life that you would like to strengthen, this group is for you.”
“If there are any important relationships in your life that you would like to strengthen, this group is for you.”
Pineapple Support was founded by British performer Leya Tanit in 2018, after a string of losses in the adult industry from depression and other mental illnesses. The organization, which is a qualified 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization in the United States, has so far connected over 5,000 adult performers to mental health services, including free and low-cost, therapy, counseling and emotional support.
“In this six-week, virtual support group, performers will learn how to navigate sexual and romantic relationships, as well as relationships with friends and family”, says Tanit. “Rachael is a talented and licensed therapist who specialises in sexuality, sexual health and relationships. With a non-judgmental, humorous and authentic approach to therapy, attendees will benefit tremendously from understanding how to approach the important relationships in their lives.”
