'Talkspace for All' is a new platform that helps individuals suffering from mental health issues connect with licensed therapists. While there are services available for those suffering from mental illness, this kind of care is often inaccessible to low-income individuals. This platform provides an affordable therapy option for those who cannot afford other forms of treatment.
Talkspace for All is a platform set to launch in July of this year. The platform is an extension of the existing text-based service that allows those seeking therapy to connect with a licensed therapist. The user can then correspond with the therapist in a private chatroom whenever they need assistance. The service is largely aimed at low-income individuals who are unable to seek other forms of treatment due to cost barriers.
The new platform aims to democratize mental health by helping more individuals connect with medical professionals.
