For Phelps, the reasons to partner with Talkspace are simple, yet noble: to endeavor to bring affordable and easily accessible mental health treatment to everyone with an internet connection. The shared goals of Talkspace and Phelps are to remove the stigma which surrounds mental health issues. When he was dealing with depression and anxiety it was difficult at first to find the help he needed, at least at first. “As I started opening up and talking about my issues, I felt strength, not vulnerability” Phelps said in the joint announcement with Talkspace.

The therapists are screened and licensed, and the encrypted conversations which unfold are safe and confidential. There’s oversight from industry professionals as well as researchers from the top universities and health care centers.

Talkspace therapists can sometimes have day jobs, but that doesn’t get in the way of helping others through the company. Employees can attend to clients in the mornings before work, in the evenings after dinner, on their lunch hour or anywhere between. It’s a company which offers flexibility for both clients and the professionals which make up the core of the company. That brings happiness to client and therapist alike.
