Michael Phelps, a celebrated athlete, has banded together with Talkspace, an online therapy for mental health. This comes after he boldly revealed that he had battled anxiety and depression for many years and could not reach out for help in fear of stigmatization. His vulnerability made him suffer in silence until he discovered the site; where he could talk to a therapist in confidentiality and remotely.
Today, he is in a partnership with Talkspace where he will be championing against stigmatizing victims of mental health. Through his personal ordeal with mental health and the course he chose for recovery, he will encourage those suffering in silence to seek medical help. Besides, with this new online therapy service, you can get help with your integrity and confidence issues not being crushed. Phelps however, observes that there is an inherent strength that develops when one speaks up and gets open about the issue.
Talkspace has indeed grown over the years to hire not just therapists and psychologist but also medical experts. It recently hired a Chief Medical Officer from UnitedHealth, Neil Leibowitz. He is in charge of building the medical enterprise and offer prescriptions to victims who need more to the talk therapy. Check out this article at Talkspace to know more.
