Getting professional help for mental health issues is important because in the otherwise case, the psychological health can continue to deteriorate. Many people are suffering from mental health issues, but one of the reasons why people don’t go for it is because traditional therapy is expensive and time-consuming. However, one of the reasons why people are flocking to Talkspace, an online and mobile therapy application based out of New York, is the fact that it is convenient at the same time affordable. People do not have to spend hundreds and thousands of dollars for therapy, and it is also flexible. The members at Talkspace can connect with the therapist via voice call, text, and video call, as per their wish and the plan they choose.
Talkspace only has licensed and professional therapist, and currently, it employs more than a thousand occupational therapist. As per the company’s CEO, Oren Frank, Talkspace has also provided counseling to more than 500,000 people. As per the recent article that was published in CNBC, The numbers of people who are joining Talkspace recently are millennials. The number of people joining Talkspace has been increasing rapidly, and many believe that the surge is partially due to the Donald Trump winning the Presidential Election. The surge has been noted mostly after the Trump’s Presidential win, and Oren Frank, the company’s CEO, says that it cannot be said yet that election has anything to do with the increase in the number of members joining Talkspace.
Talkspace announced that most of the new members since the Trump’s election had been women and millennials. The company has been planning to integrate many new features in the future to help the people get therapy at ease, privately, and affordable. Talkspace says many of the new members joining in are from the minority communities.
Whether you’re dealing with bipolar disorder that is affecting your relationships or you have a problem with severe depression that is taking its toll on your physical health, you need a therapist who is there for you when you need them the most. Therapists are trained and experienced professionals who basically talk through your problems with you to help you see these issues in a new and different light. Because of the benefits of therapy, it’s no wonder that so many doctors recommend it to patients who are struggling mentally.
Unfortunately, traditional therapy just isn’t right for everyone and, in fact, is becoming obsolete in the mental health world. With everything now being online-based and available as an app, it was just a matter of time before therapy joined the ranks in the mobile industry. The app known as Talkspace helps you to receive high-quality therapy in the comfort of your own home. The app can be downloaded and customized to your own needs, which matches you to a qualified therapist who is specialized in the field you’re suffering from, such as depression, couple’s therapy or bipolar disorder.
Along with being highly convenient because you can get therapy done in your own home, it’s a lot cheaper than regularly going to see a local therapist. Therapists often charge by the hour, and it can cost a few hundred dollars just to see someone each and every week. Unlike therapists’ costs, Talkspace only charges a few bucks a day and you’re not set to specific appointments. This means that you can contact, message or video chat with your therapist at virtually any time when and where you need it the most. Talkspace has taken the world by storm and is a great alternative to visiting a local therapist who may or may not be the right fit for you.
Talkspaceis certainly helping people change their minds if they have never really considered therapy before. This app is going to be a strong app for all of those that really want to try therapy but may have never considered going to see a traditional therapist. This is going to be beneficial for the millennial generation that relies heavy on app technology. Young people are looking at the way that app technology is evolving, and they need apps like this.
This app provides people with the ability to engage in conversation through a text-based method. This is not something that people have been used to before. Technology has evolved, however, and now this is completely feasible. At what time cell phone carriers were charging people for every text message that was received after they reached their limit. Now people have access to unlimited texting so getting a therapy session through a text message is not so abnormal at all. In fact many people from the millennial generation would crave something like this because it gives them the opportunity to get help and also do other things at the same time. This is how the millennial generation of today functions.
Few people that are using smart devices are going to want to sit with a therapist or talk on the phone with a therapist because it eliminates their ability to multitask. The millennials of today would much rather pose a question or start a conversation with a therapist and take a moment to check out Instagram or Facebook. They may have some online shopping to do through an Amazon app. There are so many things that people utilize their phones for. In time app therapy through texting will just become another facet of what people can do through their phones while multitasking.
