So lets look at the questions around Betterhelp Engineering….
The company describes BetterHelp as the “largest online counseling platform worldwide,” tailored towards helping people handling problems “such as tension, anxiety, relationships, parenting, depression, addictions, eating, sleeping, trauma, anger, household disputes, LGBT matters, sorrow, faith [or] self esteem.” The company’s frequently asked question section on its website clearly specifies BetterHelp’s app and counselors should not be utilized for people handling an extreme mental disorder (schizophrenia, bipolar illness) or for people thinking about self-harm. Instead, the app prides itself on having actually licensed therapists and psychological health experts available to assist people via text, telephone call or video chat. That’s what lots of YouTubers who have accepted sponsorships from the company frequently state in their own videos, where they speak on the tensions in their individual lives and sensations verging on anxiety or depression. Bobby Burns, Elle Mills, Philip DeFranco, Heath Hussar, Boogie2988, Shane Dawson and ChandlerNWilson are all developers who have Betterhelp Engineering sponsors now.
Many of these creators have spoken about mental health problems in the past, however as burnout ends up being a bigger subject within the community– and mainstream world– sponsorships including BetterHelp have increased, regardless of the app not being precisely what the creators are touting.
