The business describes Betterhelp.Comm… BetterHelp the “largest online counseling platform worldwide,” geared towards helping people dealing with problems “such as tension, stress and anxiety, relationships, parenting, anxiety, addictions, eating, sleeping, injury, anger, household disputes, LGBT matters, sorrow, faith [or] self-confidence.” The business’s FAQ section on its website plainly mentions BetterHelp’s app and therapists should not be utilized for individuals dealing with a serious mental illness (schizophrenia, bipolar affective disorder) or for people considering self-harm. Instead, the app prides itself on having actually certified therapists and psychological health professionals readily available to help individuals via text, telephone call or video chat. That’s what numerous YouTubers who have accepted sponsorships from the business frequently say in their own videos, where they speak on the stresses in their personal lives and sensations verging on stress and anxiety or depression. Bobby Burns, Elle Mills, Philip DeFranco, Heath Hussar, Boogie2988, Shane Dawson and ChandlerNWilson are all developers who have Betterhelp.Comm sponsors now.
Many of these creators have spoken about mental health problems in the past, however as burnout ends up being a larger subject within the community– and mainstream world– sponsorships including BetterHelp have increased, in spite of the app not being exactly what the creators are touting.
