"This app has saved my life."

"It feels like I have a therapist in my pocket."

"I have never recommended any app more than this one. I’m almost positive after using this app you will feel better and less stressed than before you got it!"

"This app is the only app/journal/therapy thing that has genuinely helped me. Just using this app for 2 weeks has given me more insight and mental health help than my therapist of a year. I’ve never felt better after starting to use Clarity, and I genuinely don’t think I would’ve been able to get here on my own."

We believe in increasing access to mental health care by sharing knowledge and self-help techniques that one might only learn about in a therapist’s office. Clarity was created with care by a team with backgrounds in clinical psychology and mental health research.

I finally feel seen

I always felt like therapy just didn’t work for me and that I might never get better because nobody could understand how to help me. I didn’t even know how to help me. I’ve tried to use many other apps but they all just felt cheap and commercial. I felt like I was being sold a nice little pamphlet that a school might hand out on five quick exercises to reduce anxiety. But then a couple of weeks ago I stumbled across this app in an attempt to gain some control over my mind. Now for the first time ever I am writing a review because I feel so thankful that the creators of this app actually knew how to help me. As someone with ADHD and anxiety I very much struggle with motivation and consistency in my journey to sanity. But the layout of the app, the gratification I get from the completion of tasks. The way the journals are actually guided all the way through make so much sense to my muddled brain. The way cbt is explained and utilized in the app has been monumental to my progress. And I love the new chatbot feature, I have really bad anxiety about texting real people but since it’s completely judgment free I can actually ask for help and discuss how to work through my problems. I just felt like I needed to say something. I really hope the app will stay as amazing as it is as it expands.

Life Changing

Self-therapy is important too and this app helps to make that statement a reality. It’s a shame more people don’t know about CBT and how many of us are unaware how it can help us out of suffering and raise us from the deep pits of ANTs. So if your one of the people that have gained insight to what it is and how to use it to heal your mind, body, and soul, GET THIS APP. I downloaded this app when I was on a verge of a breakdown. My therapist was not available but her notes were and in them I saw “CBT,” did a little more research and stumbled upon this app and my life has been steadily improving. I’m able to notice what triggers terrible moods and what makes me feel good or bad. I can easily write my negative thoughts down and confront them in this app with easy to understand definitions of the types of negative connotations that have been paralyzing me. After using it awhile I have been able to utilize the practices of the app in real time, and identify exactly what negative cognitive behaviors are trying to take over. My brain, my body, and my soul has improved dramatically because of this app. It’s not a fix it all, let everything be gone type of thing, but it is a VERY VERY POWERFUL TOOL. It’s worth the money as well! I feel fortunate that I get to track my life and see what is causing me misery for such a low cost. This app is amazing and I only gave it four stars, because the app can only get better even though it’s already really great.

The only thing that has ever helped me

This app is the only app/journal/therapy thing that has genuinely helped me. Just using this app for 2 weeks has given me more insight and mental health help than my therapist of a year. I’ve never felt better after starting to use Clarity, and I genuinely don’t think I would’ve been able to get here on my own. The app really helps me decipher and categorize my thoughts, easily allowing me to figure out what’s actually true or not. Plus, everything said on the app is kept to myself. I can’t really get full benefits from talk therapy, because I’m too embarrassed to talk to someone about such deep things. Plus, talk therapy has never really taught me how to work through the thoughts in my head instead of just talking about them.
I also really like how the app gives me prompts to follow instead of just expecting me to journal on a blank page. This really helps. Usually I can’t pick and choose what to think/write about , so the prompts give me direction.
So if your struggling, or not getting benefits with talk therapy or other types of mental health help, then I strongly encourage you to try this app. I didn’t think much of it when I first downloaded it, but it’s definitely helped.
