Oren Frank’s Solution to the Mental Health Crisis

We are currently living in a world where people often overlook mental health as a non-existent problem. However, the more we continue to turn a blind eye to the mental health crisis in the world, the more the percentage of individuals with mental health issues increases.

The objective of Talkspace is to make Psychotherapy affordable and accessible for billions of people who need it around the world. So far, ever since it was launched in 2012, this text therapy app has provided psychotherapy assistance to approximately 1 million people over the past six years. The app also aims to connect its users with their licensed therapists, and this makes it extremely easy for the therapist and user to communicate using instant message. This app has helped build the bridge between the therapist and patients who do not have access to any form of therapy today. Oren Frank’s vision when creating this form of therapy treatment was to turn a product only accessible to 1% into a treatment method available to almost everyone.

This form of treatment therapy has made it possible for people with an issue in their professional and personal life to seek help before the problem accelerates. According to Oren Frank, it is indeed quite crazy that most people still do not have access to therapy and this has led to people taking matters into their own hands. Some people have opted to cut themselves; while others chose to commit suicide because of the pressure, they experience. Having a therapist who is available and affordable can help make things easier for them.

Adam Milstein’s Opinion On Anti-Semitism

Adam Milstein is an investor, an activist and a philanthropic who was born in Haifa Israel. He spent his early life at Kiryat Motzkin after his family relocated from Haifa and Kiryat Yam. Adam Milstein joined Israel defense force at the age of 19 years before joining Israel Institute of technology where he acquired a BSc. in Business and Economics. He later married Gila Elgrably, and in 1981, the couple and its children moved to the United States. Adam then joined the University of Southern California where he attained his master degree in business administration.

As a pro- Israel activist, Adam Milstein has published many articles that have caught the attention of readers. One of the recent articles titled “Unlikely radical alliances fan the flames of anti-Semitism worldwide” he forces on how radical Muslims are determined to destroy Israel.

According to Adam, anti-Semitism which is historically common in radical right has as well been increasing in radical left. He claims that though the anti-Semitism sources have different traditions, they share ideas and this has increased cases of racism and hatred.

According to him, the alliance between radical Muslims and radical leftist is unfortunate. Because unlike earlier when the far left used to condemn the radical Muslims acts of ignoring the human rights and freedoms, they now cant question the unjust actions of their allies. The radical left views Israel as a powerful oppressor that aims at targeting the Muslims and causing their problems.

The article illustrates that the political activists Linda Sarsour has been in the forefront in strengthening the alliance. She is an affiliate to jihads, and she praises radical Muslims associated with the mass killing of innocent people. Besides her actions, she is seen and honored as a qualified feminist leader on the left.

Adam Milstein thinks that anti-Semitism tread has taken a new turn to Universities and has lured the mindset of many students. This move has made some students to publish articles that attack their fellow Israelite students. He claims that anti-Semitism in the institutions of higher learning may threaten the life of Jewish people
