Can a teenager use BetterHelp? Parent company BetterHelp launched Teen Counseling in January of 2018. It connects teenagers through an online platform with therapists who are trained to work specifically with the teen population.
Is BetterHelp for teens free? Your teen can speak with licensed therapists about their mental health conditions or even just their school challenges. You can start with a free consultation. Remember that in most states, online licensed counselors need parental consent to provide therapy to teens younger than 18.
Is BetterHelp good for kids? A BetterHelp counselor trained in working with children can give you the tools to help them through their challenges, provide the necessary resources to work with a pediatric counselor, or connect you with the licensed counselors at Teen Counseling if your teenager needs counseling.
Is Talkspace good for teenagers? Yes—Talkspace now includes text-based therapy for teens, ages 13-17. During the teenage years, a lot of changes are happening at once—physically, hormonally, and developmentally. Prioritizing mental health is just as important as grades, accomplishments, or college admissions.
