Adults with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) are invited to take advantage of Cure SMA’s latest support resource, the Adults with SMA Virtual Therapy Program, which has been generously sponsored by Genentech and the Dhont Family Foundation.
The Adults with SMA Virtual Therapy Program provides adults with SMA three complementary, 30-minute live video sessions with a licensed therapist through the online therapy company, Talkspace. 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.
This program is only for adults with SMA, ages 18 or older in the U.S. Please fill out this 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.
