Oren Frank is the co-founder of Talkspace. Talkspace is an app that brings mental healthcare to people who might not normally be able to access quality, affordable care. Talkspace can be accessed anywhere someone can use a phone, computer or tablet. It is a monthly fee for people to be able to talk to fully licensed and trained mental health professionals. With a mission of providing healthcare for all that need it, Oren and his wife Roni founded the app in 2012. It has so far helped over a million people suffering from a range of mental health problems.
Oren and Roni found the help they received in couples therapy to be invaluable, and they know that it can often save lives. Oren knows the value of sleep, and he makes sure he gets 7 hours a night. He also reads a variety of things during the day to stay informed. He also routinely interacts with people to get insights on how to best continue the progress that Talkspace has made. He also encourages the sharing of ideas, as he believes that everyone can help in bringing those ideas to fruition. He knows the value of balance in his life, and he makes sure he spends quality time with his family.
