  I want to focus 25% of my practice serving people who cannot afford to pay private practice fees, do not have access to insurance coverage, and have no (or limited) benefits through an employee assistance program. - Press Release

The people I want to assist with this fund are those who want to make meaningful change in their lives but can not afford to pay for therapy or whose access to therapy is limiting. - Some Statistics

How my Idea will work:

At its heart this idea creates a three way partnership to help someone access needed and wanted therapy.
  • The client: contributes a portion by paying some of the fee, even if it's only a small amount.
  • The Therapist (that's me): contributes a portion and absorbs all taxes.
  • The Indiegogo funder: collectively contributes the remaining or "topped-up" portion of the fee.

This chart shows how the funds collected will be used based upon fees paid by the client.

Amount paid in dollars by:

The Client         The Therapist         The Indiegogo Funder         Total
$10.00 $30.00 $70.00 $110.00
$20.00 $30.00 $60.00 $110.00
$30.00 $30.00 $50.00 $110.00
$40.00 $30.00 $40.00 $110.00
$50.00 $30.00 $30.00 $110.00


Example: A client, who can only afford to pay $20.00, will have their fee "topped up" by $60.00 from the Indiegogo Mental Health Matters Fund and I would contribute the remaining $30.00.

  • Funds will only be used to top up clients after the funds have been received and will not be used to pay for missed or cancelled appointments.
  • A record will be kept accounting for the amounts drawn from the fund. I will post regular updates on how the funds are being used on my website (www.kevinstafford.com) and at the end of the year, I will post a complete accounting of how the funds were allocated, and how many clients and sessions were generated. Client confidentiality will be maintained at all times.
