Providing emergency financial support, burnout prevention and recovery and advocacy for mental health clinicians.

On average, mental health clinicians are paid 35% less than similarly educated and trained physical health care providers.

The need for mental health services continues to increase as professionals are leaving the field more than ever.


Therapists experience secondary trauma due to the nature of their work and deserve to be cared for.

Kelsey is working towards her LPC and is working full time in a private practice setting. She is a 1099 employee, which means she’s paid a percentage of what her clients pay and does not receive any benefits like paid time off or health insurance. Over the last two months, she has had two unexpected deaths in her family. In addition to having to take unpaid time off of work, she also had travel expenses to attend funerals and begin her own therapy to process her grief. Therapist Resource Network would cover the cost of Kelsey’s flights home to properly mourn her relatives and help to ease the burden of unpaid time off and unexpected travel costs.

Tasha is a school social worker making $51,000 a year. She has two kids and is going through a divorce. Her monthly expenses have increased because of the divorce and she is still financially responsible for her student loan payment of $400 each month, which only adds to her stress level. She has been seeing a counselor to help manage the stress of it all, but is noticing the classic signs of burnout: decreased empathy towards her students, tension headaches, insomnia, and decreased motivation. She recognizes she cannot continue this pattern and will use her two-week’s paid time off from work in order to heal from the burnout and has requested funds from TRN to pay for a therapeutic retreat. 

Marcus is an LMFT who works at a community mental health agency full time. After a house fire due to faulty wiring, Marcus is overwhelmed with the recovery process. While his homeowner’s insurance is covering his housing costs, he’s had to take unpaid time off work to coordinate the repairs and focus on his emotional wellbeing after experiencing this trauma. Marcus has been living month to month on his $55,000 salary and does not have significant savings to cover these unexpected costs. Therapist Resource Network will cover two weeks of lost wages and the copay for six therapy sessions so he can focus on his recovery.
