I have apps for everything,Betterhelp Marriage Counseling… but when it comes to psychological health, you have to pick how innovation contributes in your recovery very carefully.”. Betterhelp Marriage Counseling
The company describes BetterHelp as the “largest online therapy platform worldwide,” geared toward assisting people handling concerns “such as stress, stress and anxiety, relationships, parenting, anxiety, addictions, eating, sleeping, trauma, anger, household conflicts, LGBT matters, sorrow, religious beliefs [or] self-confidence.” The business’s FAQ area on its website clearly states BetterHelp’s app and therapists should not be used for individuals handling a serious mental disorder (schizophrenia, bipolar affective disorder) or for people thinking about self-harm. Rather, the app prides itself on having actually licensed therapists and mental health experts available to help individuals through text, call or video chat. That’s what many YouTubers who have actually accepted sponsorships from the business typically say in their own videos, where they speak on the stresses in their personal lives and sensations verging on anxiety or depression. Bobby Burns, Elle Mills, Philip DeFranco, Heath Hussar, Boogie2988, Shane Dawson and ChandlerNWilson are all developers who have Betterhelp Marriage Counseling sponsors now.
A number of these creators have discussed mental health issues in the past, but as burnout ends up being a bigger topic within the community– and mainstream world– sponsorships involving BetterHelp have increased, despite the app not being exactly what the developers are touting.
