As mental health issues continue to rise all around the world, more and more people are beginning to look for help from counselors and therapists. The problem is, most people don’t have the time in their busy schedule to go see a therapist or are simply too self conscious to go and speak to one.
Oren Frank, an entrepreneur who attributes marriage counseling for saving his marriage, deciding to embark on a mission to give the benefit of therapy to anyone in a convenient way.
After giving it some serious thought, Oren and Roni Frank were able to create a revolutionary therapy platform known as Talkspace in 2012. Instead of going somewhere to meet with a therapist, Talkspace gives users that same type of therapeutic guidance via text messaging. Doing this allows users to get the type of guidance they seek at their utmost convenience, with a clinically certified therapist literally just a text message away.

As the app continues to gain popularity, Oren has used his position as CEO to continue to make the app more effective, efficient, and available for a wider audience. Within the past year, Talkspace broadened the availability so that more than one billion people can have access to a certified therapist if they so choose.
Since the inception of Talkspace, the company has had the privilege of helping more than one million people get access to a therapist and help them with a variety of symptoms such as anxiety, depression, and feelings of loneliness.
Oren Frank is proud of what the company has accomplished so far, but his mission is far from over. With still so many individuals around the world with limited access to therapy, he feels it is his duty to give them the availability of having a therapist if they choose to seek one out.
