The WIRTH Hats Counselling Program
What Is The Wirth Hats Counselling Program?
From the founding of WIRTH Hats, it has always been our mission to remove barriers that prevent people from accessing counselling. One of those barriers that many face is affordability. Through the sale of our hats, hosting events, as well as corporate and personal donations, we are now happy to provide free counselling sessions for those who would otherwise be unable to afford it. Each individual who is sponsored by the WIRTH Hats counselling fund will receive 8 sessions of free counselling with a possibility for further support.
The Mission Of Wirth Hats Is Simple
1. Make the best darn hats our heads have ever seen (In honour of Jakob Wirth’s dream).
2. Reduce the stigma around counselling and therapy.
3. To provide financial assistance for counselling and therapy for those who cannot afford it.
