As temperatures continue to rise, so does the excitement at Talkspace headquarters!
The second week of June proved to be a really busy one for Talkspace. Not only did we spend two days hanging out at Brooklyn’s Northside Festival, we also managed to make our way to Philly Pride, supporting the LGBTQ community in the city of love!

The Northside Festival
Now in its seventh year, the festival once again took over Williamsburg’s McCarren Park from June 8th to June 14th. Billed as Brooklyn’s answer to South by Southwest, the festival assembled the most disruptive brands in technology and innovation, as well as over 150 bands from near and far to perform on its famous Northside stage.
Naturally, Talkspace was there. The day started off with a keynote presentation by Talkspace founders, Roni and Oren Frank. The immersed crowd listened to how the disruptive online therapy platform is transforming the face of mental health care, before joining the rest of the attendees for the festivities.
Coming all the way from the remote island of Manhattan, Talkspace brought along its famed and highly anticipated therapy bubble, complete with air-conditioning and home furniture. Curious attendees made their way towards the inflated structure where they were greeted by our therapist superstars, and were then escorted inside. From there, they were shown how the online therapy platform could be used from the comfort of their own home.
Solidarity at its best! With the diversity of our in-house team and that of our therapists, Talkspace was absolutely thrilled and deeply honored to sponsor Philly Pride on June 15th. Not only do we support the advancement of LGBTQ-friendly rights and legislature, we are familiar with the personal, social, and mental issues individuals from this diverse community may be facing.
While the purpose of the event is to bring visibility and awareness about LGBTQ issues to the general public, Talkspace was there to support the mission as well as shed a bit of light on the unique emotional and mental needs of the LGBTQ community. Offering help to people from all walks of life, we strive to advocate for equal rights and mental health care for all.
Roni and Oren Frank mingled with the crowds, while greeting fans and talking to newcomers about Talkspace. Similarly, a few more of our incredible therapists held down the fort while explaining the Talkspace platform to the surrounding crowd. Taking curious listeners through he registration process and getting them familiar with the service, they answered questions as well as gave out promotional codes to interested parties.
With two successful events behind us, we have already begun working on some new (kind of major) projects that we will unveil over the next few months.
Stay tuned, the Talkspace team simply can’t wait to let you in on what’s currently in the event pipeline – we think you’re going to like it.
