You really need to evaluate your personal needs and state of mental help before using BetterHelp. An online therapist might be a more inexpensive but not necessarily qualified or helpful. Sometimes people just need someone to talk to, but in my sister’s case, she relied on them for serious help. They advertise high standards but did not deliver. They keep a lot of things hidden, like the fact they do not accept insurance, until after you have signed up. Also, they bombard the client with text messages and emails advertising their help, not using the contact to actually help the person. There is no real benefit of this online company.
