How does Talkspace handle emergencies? What if I am in crisis?

Talkspace is not a crisis hotline. Anyone requiring immediate assistance or in a life-threatening situation is encouraged to:

  • Call 911 or the local emergency/authorities number
  • Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-8255)
  • Call the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline (988)
  • Text START to the Crisis Text Line (741741) for text messaging support
  • Or check out more resources here: Emergency Resources

Like face-to-face therapists, Talkspace therapists are individually licensed and follow clinical and legal protocols if a person is at risk of harming themselves or others. They are also available at flexible hours per their posted availability calendars which all clients can access.
