The business describes Betterhelp Technology… BetterHelp the “biggest online therapy platform worldwide,” geared toward helping people dealing with issues “such as stress, stress and anxiety, relationships, parenting, depression, dependencies, eating, sleeping, injury, anger, household conflicts, LGBT matters, sorrow, faith [or] self-confidence.” The company’s FAQ area on its site clearly states BetterHelp’s app and therapists shouldn’t be used for individuals dealing with an extreme mental illness (schizophrenia, bipolar illness) or for people thinking about self-harm. Instead, the app prides itself on having certified therapists and mental health specialists offered to help people by means of text, 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 sensations 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 Technology sponsors now.
A number of these developers have spoken about mental health problems in the past, however as burnout becomes a bigger topic within the neighborhood– and traditional world– sponsorships including BetterHelp have actually increased, in spite of the app not being precisely what the developers are promoting.
