The business describes Betterhelp Rise… BetterHelp the “biggest online therapy platform worldwide,” geared towards helping individuals handling concerns “such as tension, anxiety, relationships, parenting, anxiety, addictions, eating, sleeping, injury, anger, household conflicts, LGBT matters, sorrow, faith [or] self esteem.” The company’s FAQ section on its website plainly states BetterHelp’s app and therapists shouldn’t be used for people handling an extreme mental illness (schizophrenia, bipolar affective disorder) or for individuals thinking about self-harm. Rather, the app prides itself on having certified therapists and mental health specialists available to help individuals via text, telephone call or video chat. That’s what lots of YouTubers who have actually accepted sponsorships from the company often 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 actually Betterhelp Rise sponsors now.
A lot of these developers have actually discussed psychological health concerns in the past, but as burnout ends up being a bigger topic within the neighborhood– and mainstream world– sponsorships including BetterHelp have actually increased, despite the app not being precisely what the creators are touting.
