Welcome to Talkspace: A Message from FAES

Talkspace is your digital space for private and convenient mental health support. With Talkspace, FAES plan participants and dependents can be matched with a recommended, licensed provider and receive support day and night from the convenience of a digital device (iOS, Android, and Web compatible). Self-guided tools and education compliment the care experience.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Starting November 1st, FAES will provide access to Talkspace online therapy and psychiatry, as well as Lasting (relationship support) from Talkspace (see below), at NO COST to plan participants.

The Talkspace program is a supplement to the comprehensive mental health benefits offered through the current FAES medical plan. The medical plan allows plan participants to seek mental health care from both in and out-of-network providers for office visits at the same $15 copayment. Plan participants will have the same coverage for mental health office visits when going in or out of the network. There are no restrictions when selecting your mental health provider since you can go to any provider nationwide using the FAES medical plan.
