Michael Phelps and Talkspace End Stigmas About Mental Health

The A-List Daily website recently published an article about Talkspace titled, “Michael Phelps Dives into Mental Health Advocacy with Talkspace.” The article was written by H.B. Duran where he discusses how the Olympic gold medalist has recently joined the Talkspace team in a commercial campaign that discusses the stigmas surrounding mental health.

Talkspace is a company that allows users to connect to a licensed therapist through an app on their computer, smartphone, or tablet. Phelps discusses his own battle with depression and anxiety in the commercial to encourage others to see a professional. He is not just joining Talkspace in an advertisement, however. He is also joining the board of advisers to help the Talkspace team in their strategy for addressing mental health.  Check out askmen.com to read more about Talkspace

Talkspace is excited to welcome the supreme athlete to their team because he has expertise in the mental health advocacy market. He uses data-driven information to help improve the conversation. The Company was also featured in an Alive News Paper article by Steven Smith titled, “Relationship Advice from Talkspace.”

Talkspace therapists provide people with a space for growth while also solving their problems. They hope to help adults with their relationship issues. Even the healthiest couples experience stress on their relationship because of cohabitation or finances. The company hopes to help couples with their relational skills as well as their individual skills to help them build a more intimate bond while also overcoming hardships. They are particularly interested in cohabitation, which can create intimacy but also stress. Talkspace hopes to provide cohabitating couples with tools to keep life moving forward instead of causing the relationship to come to an end.

Talkspace reveals the need for collaboration for cohabiting couples. It is necessary to believe that compromise and collaboration are necessary from both parties. Couples should discuss managing time, household responsibilities and other essentials where compromise should be a high priority for both.
