Michael Phelps sees his partnership with Talkspace as a valuable way he can help fellow sufferers of mental illness. From the outsider’s perspective, Phelps seemed to have the world in the palm of his hands. Behind the scenes it was a very different story. Phelps admits that there were times he did not leave his room. Those episodes would sometimes last for days. He was lost, and he did not know where to turn for help. One of the things Phelps hopes to get out of the partnership is that people ask for help. Phelps thought it was a sign of weakness, but he now knows that it is the first step to getting better. Phelps has taken part in an online campaign to raise awareness for mental health issues and how Talkspace offers unique solutions.
