Talkspace is a confidential application that uses private messaging or live video for users to interact with carefully vetted therapists that have on average of seven to ten years of experience, post-supervision and providing therapy.
“We are constantly striving for innovative ways to enhance our student-athlete experience” Vice President for Athletics Chris Pezman said. “The physical and mental health of our student-athletes is our top priority. Talkspace is a valuable resource that our student-athletes can use around their schedule when they experience symptoms that affect their mental well-being.”
“Our goal is to meet the needs of our student-athletes, focusing on overall well-being,” Senior Associate Athletics Director for Student-Athlete Development DeJuena Chizer said. “To accomplish that we need to reach our student-athletes where they are and Talkspace provides the access and platform to meet those needs. We are excited about the partnership and providing our student-athletes with this valuable resource.”
