Most people in today’s world have a smartphone seemingly attached to their hip at all times. It is mostly something that people consider to be a part of their very existence at this stage in the game. Since there is such a reliance on this technology to do even the most basic of tasks, it should come as no surprise to people that an app like Talkspace has flown up the charts of popularity for doing what it does.
Talkspace is an app that connects those who require mental health assistance with those who are able to provide it. To date it has connected some five-hundred thousand users to around one-thousand trained professionals. Those professionals help their patients via text message counseling.
A person can have a mental health crisis at any time. They may feel the need to speak with a therapist right away. The way that the world worked before, this would be very hard to do. They would have to try to schedule out an appointment well in advance. Now though, they can just reach into their pocket for the kind of help that they need.
The price that a person pays for Talkspace is very reasonable. They offer their services for just $32 per week. For that, a person will get to speak to the therapist that they are assigned to for one session per day. That means that they can take advantage of having their text therapy on their own schedule as it works for them.
This is a first of its kind program, but already the results are astounding. The company is quickly attracting the attention of the mental health profession in general, and in particular those companies that already operate to help patients get the assistance that they need. Based on this, it looks likely that Talkspace will continue to show great amounts of success in the future.
