The company describes Betterhelp Android… BetterHelp the “biggest online counseling platform worldwide,” tailored toward helping individuals dealing with problems “such as tension, anxiety, relationships, parenting, anxiety, dependencies, consuming, sleeping, injury, anger, household disputes, LGBT matters, sorrow, religious beliefs [or] self-confidence.” The company’s frequently asked question section on its site clearly specifies BetterHelp’s app and therapists shouldn’t be utilized for people handling a serious mental illness (schizophrenia, bipolar disorder) or for individuals considering self-harm. Rather, the app prides itself on having accredited therapists and psychological health professionals offered to assist people through text, call or video chat. That’s what lots of YouTubers who have actually accepted sponsorships from the business frequently say 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 Betterhelp Android sponsors now.
A lot of these developers have spoken about mental health problems in the past, but as burnout ends up being a bigger subject within the community– and mainstream world– sponsorships involving BetterHelp have increased, despite the app not being exactly what the creators are touting.
