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. To help solve this issue, Oren Frank sat down and decided to come up with a text app that will make it easy for people to access therapy without having to encounter the common difficulties that arise from in-person therapy.

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.
