TALKSPACE AND ALPHA TAU OMEGA NATIONAL FRATERNITY PLEDGE TO MAKE MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES MORE ACCESSIBLE ON CAMPUS

By making therapy more available, affordable and less stigmatized, this partnership addresses the epidemic of mental health among college students 

Alpha Tau Omega and Talkspace (www.talkspace.com), the global leader in online therapy, announced today a partnership to offer ATO undergraduate members across U.S. campuses access to Unlimited Messaging Therapy, a program used by more than 350,000 people to communicate with licensed therapists via text messages as well as asynchronous audio, photo, video messages, and live video sessions.

According to a NAMI report, more than 45 percent of young adults stop attending college because of mental health related reasons. The lack of access to mental health resources and support on campus adds to a growing list of shortcomings that could’ve prevented college students from leaving school. This year, a report that surveyed 139 college and university counseling centers showed that college students are seeking help for mental health issues at a rate of growth in enrollment by five-fold. 

Alpha Tau Omega understands everyone needs extra support at times, but for on-the-go college students with hectic academic and extra campus responsibilities, it can sometimes be difficult to find time to get help.  ATO is dedicated to the wellness of our brothers so we have partnered with Talkspace to provide personal, convenient and confidential online counseling.

Talkspace is perfect for the college lifestyle.  The app allows someone to text, audio or video message a counselor whenever someone wants to communicate.   For more information, go to talkspace.com.
