The business describes Betterhelp Hotline… BetterHelp the “biggest online counseling platform worldwide,” geared towards helping individuals handling concerns “such as stress, stress and anxiety, relationships, parenting, depression, dependencies, consuming, sleeping, injury, anger, household disputes, LGBT matters, grief, religious beliefs [or] self-confidence.” The company’s FAQ area on its website plainly states BetterHelp’s app and therapists should not be used for individuals handling an extreme mental illness (schizophrenia, bipolar disorder) or for people considering self-harm. Instead, the app prides itself on having actually accredited therapists and psychological health experts offered to assist individuals through text, telephone call or video chat. That’s what lots of YouTubers who have accepted sponsorships from the business frequently state in their own videos, where they speak on the stresses in their personal lives and feelings bordering 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 Hotline sponsors now.
A lot of these creators have actually spoken about psychological health concerns in the past, however as burnout becomes a larger topic within the community– and mainstream world– sponsorships involving BetterHelp have increased, despite the app not being exactly what the developers are touting.
