The business explains Betterhelp Bullies… BetterHelp the “biggest online counseling platform worldwide,” tailored toward helping people handling problems “such as stress, anxiety, relationships, parenting, depression, addictions, eating, sleeping, injury, anger, household conflicts, LGBT matters, grief, religious beliefs [or] self esteem.” The company’s FAQ area on its website clearly states BetterHelp’s app and therapists shouldn’t be used for people dealing with a serious mental disorder (schizophrenia, bipolar affective disorder) or for people thinking about self-harm. Instead, the app prides itself on having actually accredited therapists and psychological health specialists available to assist people through text, call or video chat. That’s what lots of YouTubers who have accepted sponsorships from the company typically say in their own videos, where they speak on the stresses in their personal 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 Bullies sponsors now.
A lot of these creators have discussed psychological health problems in the past, but as burnout ends up being a larger subject within the neighborhood– and traditional world– sponsorships including BetterHelp have increased, regardless of the app not being precisely what the creators are promoting.
