It’s time to turn a corner

Getting a panic attack and an anxiety attack at the same time truly sucks. But I am forever grateful for Talkspace being 24/7.

Shoutout to my therapist via @Talkspace. The best money I’ve ever spent in a long time.

i started using talkspace and i really like it!

SkeptiCatz

Wow, I just saw an ad on TV that Talkspace is now covered by insurance. That is a really positive thing. 👍🏽 @talkspace

Sammy Keyes

I like Talkspace. It’s nice to be able to say what I need to, and have somebody check in with me daily giving me feedback. It makes me feel more grounded and determined to do things.

Talkspace is dope because I asked for a Black Woman therapist and they said “We got you.”

S/o to @talkspace for providing a platform where I can leave messages for my therapist at anytime.

My therapist is black and very easy to talk to. I like to journal, so Talkspace is more comfortable for me to express myself.

I use @talkspace and it’s changing my life. Ask me anything if you’re curious! #BreakTheStigma

@talkspace I just want to say thank you 🙏🏽

I love Talkspace. I don’t bill my insurance. Therapist is amazing. It is like a journal that gives you great feedback. If I had to balance appts into my life I’d be stressed. I can write to her whenever I want and whenever I think of something.

Thank god for talkspace therapy. Sending my therapist messages at 2 in the morning feels less weird when that's how most of your communication occurs.

JD Groover

For real. @talkspace has helped me out so much. I was always scared of therapy. But man it helps. I wanna be an advocate. Depression is real. Anxiety is real. Not good to keep it bottled up. Worth every penny

Indra Klavins

Since in person therapy is unrealistic, I identified the attributes that I was looking for in a therapist & headed over to @talkspace. I’m only one day in & couldn’t be happier about my experience. If you’re having a tough time & have the means, give them a shot. #mentalhealth

i bite racists

So I recently started using @talkspace for online therapy and I refuse to shut up about it. I can text my therapist whenever I want through the app, there are tons of stress relief/coping exercise on the app, AND ALL BLACK PEOPLE get a discount in support of #BLM. It’s like THAT!

Two weeks ago, I personally started working with a Talkspace therapist for the 1st time.

For years I’ve travelled the country talking about relationships of influence, but I’ve used that travel as an excuse not to seek the support I know I need.

This pause gave me time to act.

Ed Campos Jr.

I'm just gonna give a big plug for therapy this morning.I really enjoying the value my @talkspace therapist provides.

I ❤️ that when I chose the therapist, I watched video introductions & then choose one I felt I would relate to most.#BreakTheStigma

Cheya Thousand

S/O to @talkspace love when my therapist is like “Hey Gurl Hey just checking on you!” 💜

Chelsea Clements

🗣I've engaged in therapy/counseling on-and-off for 20 years and never has it been easier or better than with @talkspace in the past few months. Highly recommend.

My favorite part of my day is when I get a notification from Talkspace informing me that my therapist has sent me a message.

Butterfly_Freee

It’s 9:48 at night and because of @talkspace I’m talking to a therapist 🥺 🙌🏽

Bridgette Christine

I absolutely love @talkspace, being able to talk to your therapist instantly at a moments notice is wonderful.

Alya Nabulsi

Incredibly grateful for @talkspace getting me the best therapist. I’ve really (and seriously) been making progress. Night y’all 😴🌟
