UMA Health CEO Offers Therapy to Fellow Struggling Mets Fans

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / August 1, 2018 / Today, UMA Health CEO Dave Kerpen announced that the company will be offering free therapy sessions with licensed mental health providers for any self-identified New York Mets fans. For a limited time, struggling Mets fans can redeem their free therapy session at The announcement comes a day after the worst loss in Mets history, 25-4 to the Washington Nationals, the latest event in a very difficult season for the team and its fans. The Mets record stands today at 44-60.

Said UMA CEO Kerpen, "As a life long die-hard Mets fan, I have struggled for decades with loving this team and watching while the organization makes mistake after mistake, further embarrassing the team's fans and the great city of New York. I may not have any power to improve the team, but at least now I can improve the stress and anxiety levels a bit for fellow Mets fans."

Mets fans can redeem their free confidential therapy session, valued at up to $200, by going to and entering their name, email address and most difficult moment as a fan. Each Mets fan who submits their email address will get a unique promotional code good for a free therapy session.

While the promotion for Mets fans is obviously lighthearted, its true purpose is to bring attention to the important role of therapy and help destigmatize the experience of going to a therapist. UMA aims to foster conversations that are mental health positive, and equip everyone to feel just as comfortable working on their mental health and fitness, as athletes feel working on their physical fitness.

Continued Kerpen, "The Mets may be a bit of a joke right now, but in all seriousness, therapy is no laughing matter. Tens of millions of Americans struggle with depression, anxiety, and mental health issues every year, and many of these issues go untreated. UMA is here to help change that by making therapy more accessible, beginning with New Yorkers and eventually expanding to the entire country. If even one Mets fan takes me up on this offer, I'll be happy."
