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.”
