Olympian Michael Phelps himself backs this app; he 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 connecting to over 3,000 licensed therapists for battling symptoms of anxiety and depression. Although it's free to download, the app is limited in its usefulness if you don't pay. 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.

Overall Comment

Talkspace is worth the money IMO, but you have to have realistic expectations of what you are going to get for your money. don't think your counselor will be on the end of the phone waiting to call you back immediately. but generally, therapy for depression and anxiety can be complicated with the scheduled sessions where you might need to travel to various centers, and it can be suuuuper expensive in real life. This isn't exactly cheap but still cheaper than real therapy! This app allows you to access services on the go at price that is very decent. It could also be useful to the youth who don't want to go via their parents, and anyone who might want to get therapy services discreetly. But when you message your therapist it might take them close to a whole day to respond.

Pros

Great idea - can be really valuable support when someone is struggling. Therapist I used was also really good but I can't speak for all of them, maybe I got lucky or maybe they are all good.

Cons

3 main cons: 1) it's fairly expensive, 2) I have to wait for my therapist to respond, 3) my app has frozen several times
