Demonstration Project


The NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene aims to implement a Demonstration Project which will provide universal access for teens: virtual emotional supports and mental health services to teens across the NYC. There is no NYC-funded resource that has a focus to be exclusively used by teens in NYC whose features are informed by youth perspective and feedback.

The purpose of this Demonstration Project is to provide a web and app-based platform that offers virtual mental health support to youth via multiple modalities including text-based counseling (both synchronous and asynchronous) with the option of live audio or video sessions. No platform of this kind currently exists to serve youth in NYC, and TalkSpace is uniquely positioned to be part of this demonstration project because of their existing NYC-based provider network.
