The use of smartphones has improved our lives in so many ways. No longer are we stuck sitting next to POTL (Plain old Telephone Line), now we can make phone calls from anywhere. Smartphones have simplified our lives as well. At our fingertips we can surf the net, purchase airline tickets, or even grocery shop.
New apps are constantly developed to ensure the ease of everyday living. Mental help is now just a stroke of the finger away. A new app called Talkspace, enables users to go online or use the smartphone app, to receive certified professional therapy. With Talkspace users can avoid going thru the hassle of making an appointment and going to an actual office.
Talkspace offers a variety of platforms for users to utilize. Users can participate in a session via Skype, phone call, or a chat based format. Currently, Talkspace has over a thousand professionals giving aid to more than half a million users. The app is really great for those that find it hard to find time to go to an actual clinic of office. The app is also cost efficient compared to an actual office visit or other online apps boasting the same type of service.
Talkspace shows promises of growth for the future. Its plans to collaborate with the medical behemoth Magellan Health, will push the app further beyond its current usage. Soon users will be able to get on-demand psychotherapy through Talkspace’s own assistance program. So to explain, if the company you work for chooses Magellan to run its health-care provision; employee’s will be able to use the app for receiving professional therapy. Talkspace will introduce new options in the near future for users. It looks as if Talkspace will soon become more than just a trend, but an actual asset to the medical field.
