Talkspace is a mobile app that helps people with mental health issues by matching them with a licensed therapist for virtual counseling. Users can communicate with their matched therapist via text, audio, or video from the comforts of their own homes. Spokesperson and Olympian Michael Phelps admitted to struggling with anxiety and depression most of his life until he engaged in therapy and began using the Talkspace app to feel stronger and propel him to greatness. The app offers the assistance of over 3,000 licensed therapists for battling symptoms of anxiety and depression.
When using Talkspace, you first take an assessment to determine your individual needs. The app then offers ‘Unlimited Messaging Therapy’ starting at $49 per week. The app even seeks to help adolescents through the ‘Talkspace for Teens’ section. If relationship problems are your biggest obstacle, take advantage of ‘Couples Therapy’ offered by Talkspace for $79 per week.
