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.

Surf Air is one of those companies reserved for the rich and famous. It is a charter flight company based out of Santa Monica, California. The company started five years ago to give wealthy Californians the opportunity to charter their own flights to various California-based destinations. Members could arrange for a flight from LAX to Lake Tahoe, Santa Barbara or San Fransisco for the weekend while skipping security lines at the airport.
Members of Surf Air are allowed to charter their own flights using the airline’s fleet. It’s almost like you are renting or leasing your own private plane for the afternoon. Now members have more access to the world than ever as Surf Air has announced expansion to 20 different European cities. These cities include Nice, Brussels, Munich, Zürich, Milan and Luxembourg. So, if you want to fly on your own plane to Munich for the weekend, you can do so as a member of Surf Air.
Now the California-based airline is announcing free membership upgrades for all of its customers to celebrate a five year anniversary. Surf Air has announced a new way to board the plane at LAX airport. Construction is now complete on The Private Suite LAX which gives members the easiest boarding procedure possible. It’s a private terminal with its own security force and customs enforcement. Members do not have to wait in lines, shuffle through crowds or be hassled by security. Instead, they are driven straight to their plane on the tarmac while their bags are handled for them.
Surf Air also wants its powerful customers to have great networking opportunities. That’s why they have partnered with Founders Card which allows customers deep business networking opportunities with over 25,000 different business people, entrepreneurs and innovators.
The California-based airline has also announced another partnership with Blade Air. Blade is essentially Surf Air for the New York City-area. The company runs helicopters and seaplanes out of Manhattan to destinations like East Hampton, Newport and Nantucket. This partnership will also allow Surf Air customers access to Blade’s seven different luxury suites across its airport network in the northeastern United States.
