In today’s age of technological advancements, we rely on our phones for just about everything. From directions to daily appointments and everything else in between, our phones are part of our bodies just as our right hands are. With all that we have to do, finding time to properly care for our mental health can be challenging. Well, now we can use our phones for that too!
Talkspace is an online therapy tool designed to give you access to mental health care professionals right from your phone.
If you have a busy life and are short on time, Talkspace will help you get the mental health care you need without having to spend hours driving across town just to sit in an office.
It will also help your wallet. Talkspace has a variety of plans to fit your budget. Plans begin from $32 a week, which allows you to speak with your therapist once a day through text. For $39 a week, you get 2 check-ins per day and for $49 a week, you can get that and a “live session” with your therapist once per month.
This service is perfect for those who have social anxiety, time restrictions, and are challenged in their ability to acquire transportation for appointments.
If you are worried about the social stigma of being in therapy, Talkspace is great because it’s on your phone and kept completely private. No one has to know that you’re in therapy!
So if you’re in need of therapy, but don’t have the time, transportation, or finances to utilize traditional “office” therapy, Talkspace might be the perfect solution for you.
