So lets look at the questions around Betterhelping….
The company explains BetterHelp as the “biggest online counseling platform worldwide,” tailored towards assisting individuals dealing with concerns “such as tension, anxiety, relationships, parenting, anxiety, addictions, consuming, sleeping, trauma, anger, family conflicts, LGBT matters, grief, faith [or] self esteem.” The company’s FAQ area on its website plainly mentions BetterHelp’s app and therapists shouldn’t be utilized for individuals dealing with a severe mental illness (schizophrenia, bipolar disorder) or for individuals thinking about self-harm. Instead, the app prides itself on having licensed therapists and mental health specialists readily available to help people through text, phone call or video chat. That’s what many YouTubers who have actually accepted sponsorships from the business typically say in their own videos, where they speak on the tensions in their personal lives and feelings verging on anxiety or anxiety. Bobby Burns, Elle Mills, Philip DeFranco, Heath Hussar, Boogie2988, Shane Dawson and ChandlerNWilson are all creators who have Betterhelping sponsors now.
Much of these creators have discussed mental health problems in the past, but as burnout becomes a larger subject within the neighborhood– and traditional world– sponsorships involving BetterHelp have increased, despite the app not being precisely what the developers are touting.
