CNBC - A survey by dating app Pure found that 92% of American adults favor dating individuals who've undergone therapy. 70% are open to discussing mental health early in relationships, and half appreciate therapy being mentioned on a first date. Psychotherapist Esther Perel sees pros and cons to this new reality. In a June interview with Vanity Fair, she explained how the shift to more transparency about emotional health and the benefits of counseling have created a space where more people can develop greater self-awareness and prioritize self-reflection. At the same time, some people might hide behind "therapy speak" or use it to push others away, she added.
