Here is another edition of In It Together, as we go live with Dr. Amy Cirbus of Talkspace. We’ll be talking about how to handle the uncertainty, fear and anxiety brought about by this world-wide crisis. If you have not heard of it, Talkspace is a convenient and affordable way to connect with licensed therapists. Right now they are offering free resources to increase access to therapists for both existing users and non-users alike including free therapist-led Facebook support groups where individuals can seek guidance, tips, and resources directly from a licensed therapist. These groups also allow individuals to cultivate a sense of community during this isolating time.

Additionally, they have launched a COVID-19 channel on thier Instagram account. Individuals can ask questions related to coronavirus and relevant topics (anxiety, loneliness, fear, WFH, etc) using the “Questions” feature on Instagram Stories. One of Talkspace's licensed therapists will answer these questions daily. They are also gathering all of the past q+a’s on their COVID-19 Story Highlight on Instagram.
