So lets look at the questions around What’s Betterhelp….
The company describes BetterHelp as the “biggest online counseling platform worldwide,” geared toward assisting people dealing with issues “such as tension, anxiety, relationships, parenting, depression, dependencies, eating, sleeping, trauma, anger, family conflicts, LGBT matters, grief, religion [or] self-confidence.” The company’s frequently asked question area on its website clearly mentions BetterHelp’s app and counselors should not be used for individuals handling a serious mental illness (schizophrenia, bipolar affective disorder) or for people considering self-harm. Instead, the app prides itself on having actually accredited therapists and psychological health professionals offered to help people via text, call or video chat. That’s what lots of YouTubers who have actually accepted sponsorships from the company often say in their own videos, where they speak on the tensions in their personal lives and sensations verging on anxiety or anxiety. Bobby Burns, Elle Mills, Philip DeFranco, Heath Hussar, Boogie2988, Shane Dawson and ChandlerNWilson are all developers who have What’s Betterhelp sponsors now.
Many of these creators have spoken about psychological health problems in the past, however as burnout becomes a larger subject within the community– and traditional world– sponsorships involving BetterHelp have actually increased, despite the app not being exactly what the creators are promoting.
