Over the last few years, NBA stars have become more and more vocal about issues that are important to them.
All-Stars have been front-and-center regarding civil and voting rights, COVID vaccinations, fair pay, and more.
And there seems to be no sign of that slowing down any time soon.
Paul George will partner with BetterHelp, a mental health therapy platform, to provide up to $3M worth of free therapy to people in need.

Los Angeles Clippers player Paul George has started a partnership with mental health company BetterHelp.
Through this partnership, the mental health therapy platform will provide up to $3 million worth of free therapy to people who need it.
George has been very candid in the past about his own mental health struggles so it makes sense that he would put his energy into helping others.
BetterHelp Giving Help
BetterHelp is the biggest online therapy platform in the world and has created partnerships with other athletes like Venus Williams, Frances Tiafoe, and more.
George is just the latest to help spread the word about the platform.
The Clippers star spoke about BetterHelp and why he wanted to assist them: “It just was natural. I think it’s not talked about enough, as far as the mental health side. And, you know, it’s here, it’s very much here. It’s a part of everyone’s life.”
He added: “I heard of what they were doing, and I wanted to be a part of it. I love what they’re doing, bringing awareness to it, and I see this being a great step and a great chapter in everyone’s life.”
George has said that therapy is now a big part of his life and has helped him tremendously.
Now the star player is looking to give others the sort of help that has done so much for him.
