The company describes Betterhelp Counseling… BetterHelp the “largest online counseling platform worldwide,” geared towards helping people dealing with issues “such as tension, anxiety, relationships, parenting, depression, dependencies, eating, sleeping, trauma, anger, household conflicts, LGBT matters, grief, faith [or] self-confidence.” The business’s frequently asked question section on its website clearly specifies BetterHelp’s app and counselors shouldn’t be used for people dealing with an extreme mental disorder (schizophrenia, bipolar affective disorder) or for people thinking about self-harm. Rather, the app prides itself on having licensed therapists and mental health experts offered to assist individuals via text, telephone call or video chat. That’s what lots of YouTubers who have accepted sponsorships from the business frequently say in their own videos, where they speak on the tensions in their personal lives and feelings verging on anxiety or anxiety. Bobby Burns, Elle Mills, Philip DeFranco, Heath Hussar, Boogie2988, Shane Dawson and ChandlerNWilson are all creators who have actually Betterhelp Counseling sponsors now.
Much of these creators have actually spoken about mental health issues in the past, but as burnout ends up being a larger subject within the community– and mainstream world– sponsorships involving BetterHelp have increased, despite the app not being precisely what the creators are promoting.
