During a crisis, using the word "talk" to begin a conversation, "Can we talk about how you are?" often gets a negative response. The reason is that we place little value on "talk." Talk is cheap or meaningless. However, substituting the word with "speak", seems to have better results.
"Talk" is loaded with context that makes it fruitless in these scenarios, while the word "speak" is free from those associations.
