STARTING THERAPY WITH TALKSPACE
Research shows that 1 out of 5 Americans will experience a mental health condition each year. Although mental health issues may be more common than we expect, it can still be hard to seek help.
Apprehension about therapy is completely normal, but Talkspace helps to make the process as beneficial as possible.
Starting with therapy can feel like a monumental step to take in your mental health journey — and it is! But that doesn’t mean it’s an insurmountable obstacle. Talkspace makes getting started easy by helping you narrow down your choices of therapist to the best options for you. Once you’ve decided to start with a therapist, you can schedule your complimentary 10-minute introductory video visit so that you and your new therapist can meet (virtually) face-to-face.
One of the reasons Talkspace is such a great resource for mental health therapy is because it puts the power in your hands. With Talkspace, you can send messages (text, audio, picture, and video) to a therapist in a private, textbased chat room where you can engage with your therapist at your own pace, on a flexible schedule. You’ll have access to free, unlimited messaging therapy and one 30-minute video session with your therapist each month, so you can communicate in the way you’re most comfortable. Talkspace is completely confidential, and it’s free to use for you and your covered dependents ages 13 and older.
