So lets look at the questions around Talkspace Counseling & Therapy….
The company describes BetterHelp as the “biggest online counseling platform worldwide,” geared toward helping people dealing with problems “such as stress, anxiety, relationships, parenting, depression, dependencies, eating, sleeping, injury, anger, household disputes, LGBT matters, grief, religion [or] self-confidence.” The business’s FAQ area on its website clearly specifies BetterHelp’s app and therapists should not be utilized for individuals handling an extreme mental illness (schizophrenia, bipolar affective disorder) or for people thinking about self-harm. Instead, the app prides itself on having actually licensed therapists and psychological health specialists offered to assist people through text, phone call or video chat. That’s what many YouTubers who have accepted sponsorships from the business often state in their own videos, where they speak on the tensions in their individual lives and feelings verging on anxiety or depression. Bobby Burns, Elle Mills, Philip DeFranco, Heath Hussar, Boogie2988, Shane Dawson and ChandlerNWilson are all developers who have Talkspace Counseling & Therapy sponsors now.
A number of these developers have actually spoken about mental health issues in the past, but as burnout ends up being a larger subject within the neighborhood– and mainstream world– sponsorships including BetterHelp have increased, in spite of the app not being precisely what the developers are touting.
