Pineapple Support Marks 5th Anniversary Milestone

Pineapple Support is marking its fifth anniversary with the announcement that it has reached a new outreach milestone.

A rep reports that that the nonprofit has now connected more than 10,000 adult performers with mental health and emotional support services.

Leya Tanit, founder and CEO of Pineapple Support, said, “When we launched Pineapple Support in 2018, it was with the incredible hope that we could at least help a small sector of the industry. To look back five years later on 10,000 lives touched is moving and sobering. We still have a long way to go, but we’re ever closer to ensuring that no performer feels like they have to struggle alone.”

Pineapple Support reports that between 300 and 400 performers use its resources at any given time, working with more than 370 therapists globally.

“The platforms, people, organizations and outlets that have supported us are truly responsible for this milestone, and my heartfelt thanks go out to them, as well as the incredibly talented therapists we work with,” Tanit added. “We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished and are working hard to launch more initiatives, support groups, webinars, events and campaigns over the coming months. I hope more people will join us in building a safer, healthier, more supportive industry.”

Pineapple Support Launches ADHD Support Group – Sponsored By Clips4Sale

Pineapple Support will host a weekly online support group for performers with attention deficit disorder, sponsored by Clips4Sale.

The group, “How ADHD Can Be Your Super Power,” will meet over six weeks and will be led by Pineapple Support therapist Moushumi Ghose. The first session will be held on Tuesday, April 18 at 4 p.m. EDT.

“Learning the basics about ADHD, its symptoms, related diagnoses and treatment options can be a game-changer both for those with ADHD, as well as those that want to support others with the disorder better,” said Pineapple therapist Michele Green.

Founded in 2018 by Leya Tanit, Pineapple Support has connected over 10,000 adult performers and industry members with mental health services, including free and low-cost therapy, counseling and emotional support.

“A better understanding of ADHD, and the way its traits are perceived, can be hugely beneficial,” said Tanit. “When we change the way we think about ADHD, we can support ourselves and others in a way that’s free from shame and judgment. Knowing how to advocate for yourself and ask for the support you need can pave the path towards living a more meaningful life with ADHD.”

The group will meet every Tuesday at the same time, with the final session on May 23.
