World class athlete Michael Phelps partnered with online therapy platform Talkspace to promote mental health and encourage who needs help to take therapy. The campaign is accompanied by a national TV campaign featuring Phelps talking about his personal experiences in mental health. He also talked about how Talkspace Reviews helped him cope up with depression and anxiety.
Michael Phelps is a world champion swimmer and a 280time medalist and is one of the best athletes in the world. Although he seems to be having the career that every athlete wants, he admitted that he struggled with depression and anxiety. However, that changed when Phelps was introduced to an app called Talkspace.
Talkspace is an app that offers affordable and confidential therapy or counseling. It offers services from a licensed and experienced therapist. Currently, Talkspace has over 3,000 professional therapists working to help mental issues such as depression, anxiety, and coping for people who are part of communities such as LGBT and veterans. The therapy is available in different mediums, including text, audio, and video calling. As long as the device is connected to the Internet, a client can access therapy at any time of the day and anywhere.
A lot of people ask how the app works, and how the therapy happens on the internet. Talkspace starts by getting an assessment to the client. The client can choose a plan that suits him or her. Talkspace will find the best match for the client’s situation and start the therapy. Conversations are synced in all devices, so the client can talk to his or her therapist on the go using a phone and on a PC at the comfort of home.
“I realized I am the strongest person I know, but I felt like the weakest.” Michael Phelps stated in during his participation in the campaign. In addition to this campaign, Phelps also joined the Talkspace Board of Advisors, which is a group of industry experts, psychologists, and corporate CEOs for mental health strategies. VP of Marketing Michael Kuznetsov and the whole Talkspace family welcomed Phelps aboard and believes that his help will be a great driving force to fight the stigma surrounding mental health.
