Cure SMA is happy to announce that we have launched the Adults with SMA Virtual Therapy Program, sponsored by Genentech and the Dhont Family Foundation.
It has never been more important to take care of our mental health, as we continue to navigate through uncertain times. Whether you are in the midst of a critical problem, are experiencing general distress, or just need someone to talk to, therapy is a valuable investment.
The Adults with SMA Virtual Therapy Program provides adults with SMA up to three complementary 30-minute live video sessions with a licensed therapist through the online therapy platform, Talkspace.
This program is only for adults with SMA, ages 18 or older in the US. Please fill out the request form if you meet these criteria and would like to receive a voucher. Each request form is for one session voucher; after you complete your first therapy session, you have the option to fill out the request form again to receive an additional two therapy session vouchers for a maximum of three sessions. Cure SMA staff will be reviewing each registration to confirm eligibility, and you will receive a separate confirmation email from Talkspace once approved.
In this confirmation email you will receive an e-card with more information. There will be a brief assessment to determine recommended therapist matches, then you will make the final choice on who you would like to work with. Talkspace is a HIPAA-compliant secure platform that has licensed therapists from all 50 states that are ready to help with anything you may be going through.
For more information on wellness and mental health resources, please see Cure SMA’s new Care Series booklet, Caring for Your Emotional and Mental Health.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about the program or registration. We look forward to having you participate in these virtual community engagement events!
