The company explains Betterhelp University… BetterHelp the “biggest online counseling platform worldwide,” tailored towards helping people handling concerns “such as tension, anxiety, relationships, parenting, anxiety, dependencies, eating, sleeping, injury, anger, family conflicts, LGBT matters, grief, religious beliefs [or] self esteem.” The business’s FAQ area on its website clearly states BetterHelp’s app and therapists should not be used for people dealing with a serious mental disorder (schizophrenia, bipolar affective disorder) or for people thinking about self-harm. Instead, the app prides itself on having certified therapists and psychological health professionals offered to help people via text, telephone call or video chat. That’s what many 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 stress and anxiety or anxiety. Bobby Burns, Elle Mills, Philip DeFranco, Heath Hussar, Boogie2988, Shane Dawson and ChandlerNWilson are all creators who have Betterhelp University sponsors now.
Much of these developers have discussed psychological health problems in the past, however as burnout becomes a larger topic within the community– and traditional world– sponsorships involving BetterHelp have increased, in spite of the app not being exactly what the creators are touting.
