HealthyPlace.com, the largest consumer mental health site on the Internet, invites real people to record first-person stories using Evoca’s voice-to-web services.

HealthyPlace chose Evoca to deliver its engaging social media feature, “Share Your Mental Health Experiences”, accessible by calling toll-free 1-888-883-8045.

“Before using Evoca, we had people share their stories in writing. But you don’t get the full emotional sense of what somebody is going through if it’s just on paper”, explains Gary Koplin, HealthyPlace CEO and founder. “Most people aren’t great writers. And so to hear them talk and share their story and feel the full emotion in their voice brings their story, their feeling to a whole different level.” Followers can also respond to other people’s audio posts and the e-newletter’s topic of the week.
Gary speaks about how HealthyPlace benefits from using Evoca to connect with its followers.
