Mental healthcare companies need to ensure user safety on social media


Mental health platforms encounter a twofold task on social media: safeguarding individuals' health information while fostering a secure space for discussing sensitive topics.

Protecting the privacy and confidentiality of users is paramount, and brands in the healthcare space must implement measures to adhere to HIPAA - the U.S. health privacy law. At the same time, ensuring safety means that individuals can engage in discussions without the risk of encountering harmful content or misinformation, ultimately promoting a positive and supportive online community.

By prioritizing user safety on social media, healthcare companies can demonstrate their commitment to their users' well-being and maintain their credibility as trusted sources of mental health support and information sources.


About Talkiatry

Talkiatry is a pioneering mental health platform dedicated to providing accessible and high-quality mental healthcare to individuals in the US. Founded on the belief that everyone deserves access to psychiatry and therapy, Talkiatry has emerged as a beacon of hope in the digital age.

Talkiatry's commitment to creating a safe space on social media for open conversations perfectly mirrors its core mission of improving mental well-being and dismantling the stigma associated with mental health issues in our society.


Managing sensitive conversations in real-time

Talkiatry has a solid content strategy and shares valuable insights, resources, and support across their Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, TikTok, and X accounts.

However, the brand needed a way to manage comments at scale 24/7 across their organic content and ads. By proactively monitoring and moderating conversations, Talkiatry prevents hate speech and bullying comments, protects individuals' health information, and safeguards its brand reputation. Simultaneously, engaging with users professionally and empathetically helps to reframe the conversation around mental health and builds user trust.

BrandBastion services have been instrumental for our operations. Previously, we were constantly navigating the challenges of comment management. Thanks to BrandBastion, we've efficiently refined our strategy, allowing our team to redirect their efforts toward more pressing priorities, as BrandBastion handles the remaining tasks.”
