Talkspace Partners with Michael Phelps

Talkspace is a revolutionary new way for people to get help for mental health issues. They have partnered with Olympian Michael Phelps to promote awareness for a wide range of problems. Phelps tells his story about how he felt so bad at times that he contemplated suicide. More than 50% of people suffering from mental health issues will never look for help. There are a variety of reasons for this. Some people may not be able to afford or get to a mental health professional, but more so, people are still afraid to ask for help. They may feel that it is a sign of weakness. Phelps sees it as the opposite. He thought it was his strongest moment when he reached out for help. Read more articles about Talkspace at USA Today

Talkspace, founded by Oren Frank, aims to help people who are not served by traditional treatment facilities. Talkspace offers e-therapy. Patients can access doctors through their phones and video conferencing. The treatment is completely confidential. Therapists are ready to offer clinical advice, but they are also able to help with emotional counseling. There is also a wider community of users who can offer advice and support to other sufferers. It is a huge bonus to be able to talk freely to other people which is something that patients offer feel afraid to do.

One of Talkspace’s doctors, Dr. Samantha Rodman, explains how often people are not even sure what type of illness they have. She says it is important for people to know what they have, so they can get the correct treatment.

Talkspace has already helped millions of people with a wide range of mental health issues. One of Frank’s goals is to make it possible for more people to ask for help, and when they ask for help, to have somewhere to go.
