About this app

Talkspace is the most convenient and affordable way to improve your mental health. Get matched with a licensed therapist in your state from the comfort of your device, and message via text, audio, and video.


Tell us your preferences for therapy, and match with one of our therapists in your state the same day. Send your therapist unlimited text, audio, picture, or video messages from anywhere, at any time — you’ll hear back at least once a day, 5 days per week.


Talkspace has been shown to be as effective as face-to-face therapy. In one recent study, 81% of participants felt Talkspace is as effective or better than in-person therapy. In another, individuals who used Talkspace for only 2 months significantly improved symptoms of depression and anxiety. Talkspace has been featured in The Wall Street Journal,, Business Insider, and more.

It's been a few days since registration. The therapist assigned always says not here, can't find where or how to communicate with the therapist. Clicking links just takes me back to the same introduction page. Terrible experience so far. --- continued from almost a year ago --- Eventually got an account to work, but no therapist available, or they simply don't respond. Now it says my subscription has ended. This is absolutely the opposite of what i was expecting to experience.

Absolutely love this app. Been seeing my therapist weekly for a year now. I'm so thankful for this option. I'd been looking for therapy in my area for years with no luck. it's a small town with limited options so there was never any opening. Thanks to talkspace, I've finally had the access I've been needing and getting the assistance I need. Finally. And it's covered by my insurance at 100%! It's a win win.

I spent more time trying to figure out things with insurance than actual sessions. That was at the start, when the ambiguous "credits" rolled through, insurance had no clue talkspace didn't respond to anything. I had to get matched each time to renew credits thru insurance. Providers had to open availability and we both had go through process. A while back this app had under 3 stars. With a roughly lower ratio of positive to negative reviews, makes me think there's a bot leaving good reviews
