    Re: Finding Mental Health Care When Money Is Tight

    From an e-mail I received today from Talkspace:

    Introducing Talkspace Journal. It’s only $13/week ($49/month) and pairs you with a licensed therapist to help you reach your goals.

    Use your Talkspace room as your Journal and write down the thoughts and ideas you want to explore. Write as much as you want, anytime of day and your therapist will respond once per week to help keep you on track.

    Ask your Matching Therapist about Talkspace Journal today and watch your progress unfold. Upgrade to daily responses from your therapist at anytime.
    In other words, you get a therapist to reply weekly to your online journal for $49 USD billed monthly. Otherwise, one can pay $196 USD a month for almost-daily therapy responses.

    BTW, the $49 monthly "journal" plan at Talkspace is not advertised at all on the Internet. It is also referred to as a maintenance plan. It is to help attract those who are reluctant to pay the $196+ a month:Screenshot_20180801-120247~2.jpeg

    In addition to their Talkspace site, do they also have a Talkbook site?

    I’d like to see the credentials of the “professional’s credentials” who owns it GOOP and Gweneth Paltrow?

    Re: Finding Mental Health Care When Money Is Tight

    McTherapy would be a good name as well for the $49 plan.

    But, at least in my state, the therapists they offer are all licensed in my state. I think therapists may be seeing this as a sliding scale offering (to the extreme) since they only get about half the revenue paid to Talkspace. Basically, supplemental income.
