According to a 2016 study published in the Journal of the American Dental Association, dentists have higher rates of anxiety, depression and stress compared to the general population. Additionally, a 2019 survey conducted by the American Dental Association found that 79% of dentists reported experiencing burnout at some point in their career.
May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and DSN recognizes the importance of mental health support for dental professionals. Because of this,we are proud to announce that Dental Success Network, in partnership with Mango Voice, is now offering Talkspace to all members.
Talkspace is a leading provider of online therapy and counseling services and DSN members now have access to its full service suite including: therapy and counseling, psychiatry, Talkspace Self Guided, meditation practices, journaling exercises, and so much more.
DSN members will have access to licensed therapists and mental health professionals through Talkspace’s platform, which offers therapy and counseling services via messaging, video calls and audio messaging in light of the mental health challenges faced by dentists. These same services average $450 per month when paid out of pocket, depending on the plan.
As a DSN member, you and your family now have access to online therapy at no cost. This includes unlimited messaging, as well as the option to use one 30-minute live video session (via chat, audio, or video) with your Talkspace therapist each month.
We are thrilled to partner with Talkspace to provide our members with access to mental health support. Dentists face unique mental health challenges, and it’s important you have access to high-quality care and support. We believe that this partnership will make a real difference in the lives of our members.
