The financial advice site is working with Safe Space, a digital mental healthcare provider, to help people get back on their feet.

In a Facebook post, TWS shared that they are trying to make tele-therapy more accessible in our community. They realised that not everyone is blessed to be in a good mental state.


Furthermore, it may be hard for people to seek help due to the stigma towards and costs of receiving mental health services.

TWS hopes to help by paying for tele-therapy services provided by Safe Space. Those who need it can rest assured as the therapists at Safe Space are licensed.

While sessions for each month are limited, TWS said they are exploring other options.
