So lets look at the questions around Teladoc Acquires Betterhelp Today….
The business describes BetterHelp as the “biggest online therapy platform worldwide,” tailored towards assisting individuals dealing with issues “such as stress, stress and anxiety, relationships, parenting, depression, addictions, eating, sleeping, trauma, anger, household conflicts, LGBT matters, sorrow, faith [or] self esteem.” The company’s FAQ 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 considering self-harm. Instead, the app prides itself on having certified therapists and mental health experts readily available to help individuals by means of text, call or video chat. That’s what many YouTubers who have accepted sponsorships from the company often state in their own videos, where they speak on the stresses 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 Teladoc Acquires Betterhelp Today sponsors now.
Many of these developers have spoken about psychological health problems in the past, but as burnout becomes a larger topic within the community– and mainstream world– sponsorships including BetterHelp have actually increased, regardless of the app not being exactly what the developers are touting.
