Our hearts are heavy with sadness for all those affected by the unthinkable damage caused by #HurricaneHarvey. At Talkspace we strongly believe in solidarity, community, and kindness which is why we are sharing our resources to help the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.

We have created a free, therapist-led support group on Facebook and invite all those affected by this disaster to join. We hope this group will provide a safe space for those affected to grieve their losses and process the complex and overwhelming emotions they may be experiencing. This step can help begin the healing process and let people know they are not alone. Please share this post with anyone you know who could use the support right now –– sending you all love and strength.

Our New Dean!

Eric Boerwinkle, Ph.D., a world-renowned genetics researcher and educator, has been appointed dean of The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) School of Public Health, effective January 1.

“Dr. Boerwinkle is an outstanding scientist, known around the world for his research involving the genetic causes of our most common and debilitating diseases. Working with leaders and faculty members from across the school’s six campuses, Dr. Boerwinkle will leverage our state-wide reach to address critical public health issues, including population health, comparative effectiveness research and precision medicine. He will implement a new strategic direction founded on collaboration and team-building both within the school and with other programs throughout our university. I am confident that under his leadership our School of Public will be recognized as one of the best in the country,” said Giuseppe N. Colasurdo, M.D., UTHealth president and Alkek-Williams Distinguished Chair.
