We meet people daily, talk, laugh, play and do a lot of this, and to us they appear okay. However, from their inner cage they could be fighting depression, stress, anxiety and cannot sleep. The plain fact is that, most people prefer to suffer and deal with the issue in solitude rather than seek therapy. Talkspace has brought so much confidentiality and may be the reason why it is very popular.
Michael Phelps recently revealed that for a very long time he has to deal with anxiety and depression and did not find the need to seek help. He later realized, talking about it somewhat healed him and the Talkspace made it easy for him since he could talk to a counsellor from any location. Phelps explain how Talkspace has helped him and how his life has changed.
