Having a great friend that you can communicate with about your problems is a wonderful blessing. However, that person does not have to be someone that you know personally anymore. If you are willing to pay a reasonable rate, you can have a therapist willing to text you about your mental health issues.
Talkspace is the way that people all around the country and the world are doing this. It is a newer service out there that helps connect those with mental health struggles with a licensed professional who can help talk them through those problems.
Text messaging someone who is a professional and knows what he or she is doing can help a person receive the best quality care that they can possibly receive. It is a different way of doing things than some might be used to, but that just means that technology has moved in the right direction towards helping us with the mental health problems that we have.
Magallen Health has reached out to Talkspace to partner with them on their program. They want to provide Talkspace to their patients for use in the near future. That program is just about to get kicked off and started. Once that happens, you can bet that more people will have heard about Talkspace, and probably many more will want to start using it as well.
Even though there are lingering stigmas about mental illness, these are slowly being overcome through services such as Talkspace. It is a step in the right direction. It is a sign that technology can be used to help us solve our problems. It is also just a great thing for the whole human race and human condition in general. Few services on one’s phone are as potentially life-altering as this one can be for some people.
