So lets look at the questions around Commercial Betterhelp….
The company describes BetterHelp as the “biggest online therapy platform worldwide,” geared toward helping people handling issues “such as tension, stress and anxiety, relationships, parenting, anxiety, dependencies, consuming, sleeping, trauma, anger, household disputes, LGBT matters, sorrow, religion [or] self-confidence.” The company’s frequently asked question area on its site plainly mentions BetterHelp’s app and counselors shouldn’t be used for individuals handling an extreme mental illness (schizophrenia, bipolar illness) or for individuals considering self-harm. Instead, the app prides itself on having certified therapists and mental health specialists readily available to assist people through text, call or video chat. That’s what many YouTubers who have accepted sponsorships from the company frequently say in their own videos, where they speak on the tensions in their individual lives and feelings verging on stress and anxiety or anxiety. Bobby Burns, Elle Mills, Philip DeFranco, Heath Hussar, Boogie2988, Shane Dawson and ChandlerNWilson are all creators who have actually Commercial Betterhelp sponsors now.
A number of these developers have spoken about mental health problems in the past, but as burnout becomes a larger subject within the neighborhood– and mainstream world– sponsorships involving BetterHelp have increased, regardless of the app not being precisely what the creators are touting.
