Introduction

Depression is a topic that few people, other than therapists, like to talk about. We’ve all felt depressed at some point in our lives, and during depression, it is tough to speak with people about our problems. In this article, we will talk about an app and blog called Talkspace.

Talkspace

Talkspace is an app and blog site, which has made it possible and easy for people suffering from depression to speak with a therapist, from the comfort of their home, and on mobile devices. In the Talkspace blog, Alicia Winkle (5 years as therapist) was asked a series of questions relating to depression and therapy. She became a therapist in order to help people deal with their own obstacles. She realized this was what she wanted to do after she had her own obstacles, which led her to drop out of her previous field of study, nursing.

People often hide their depression, but it follows them on a daily basis. It can even be dangerous for the person suffering from depression. It is tough for depressed people to understand that they are beautiful, successful, young, and have everything going for them, while still being depressed. Being depressed does not mean that all of these things are no longer true, it only means that you are in a negative state of mind. Talkspace was created so that people could speak to professional therapists such as Alicia Winkle.

Conclusion

In conclusion, we provided a short version of what Talkspace is, and what it does. It is a blog website, and app that helps people deal with depression by giving them the ability to speak with professional therapists. Alicia Winkle states that, “We don’t have to completely understand everything a client shares with us.”
