Talkspace has created a new way for people to get care for mental health issues. They saw that there was a need for people to be able to talk to therapists, as often they could not use traditional methods. Some people live too far away from mental health professionals, or they do not have enough money. Since Talkspace is a confidential service, it is also a good way for people who do not want to talk to family or friends to get help.
Michael Phelps felt the same way. Despite being a world class athlete who appeared to have it all, Phelps felt alone and unable to talk to anyone about his crippling mental illness. He even thought about suicide at one point. He knows that taking the first step and talking to someone can be very difficult. He is now a firm believer in the work Talkspace does.

Talkspace can be accessed using a variety of online tools. People can use text, or they can use Talkspace’s app. There are also options for video calls. Talkspace has a team of highly trained doctors and staff who are experts in mental health. Talkspace founder Oren Frank wanted to provide a much needed service to those who would not get help using traditional methods. Mental health issues affect up to 25% of the population, but just a fraction of them get professional help.
Another aspect of Talkspace is their wide community of people who can communicate using Talkspace’s online blogs and chats. It can be a great relief for sufferers to be able to hear from people who have been through, or are going through, the same things they are.
Talkspace is an affordable and convenient way for people to get the help they need, and by using Phelps as a spokesman, they show that anyone can suffer from mental health problems.
