"I have already had my eyes opened to so many new tools in only one forty minute session with the app."

"Thank you so much. I'm seriously about to cry because today's session was so important and useful to me."


A pilot study of 80 UpLift users showed that in just 1 month, those who stuck with the program had nearly a 50% reduction in depression scores that lasted, as well as a 37% reduction in anxiety scores. (1)

UpLift was developed by expert psychologists and leaders from the field of mobile mental health. It's based on Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, which has been used to treat people with depression and anxiety for over 30 years.

"UpLift is strongly aligned with the principles and methods of cognitive-behavioral therapy. A carefully done study has clearly demonstrated its positive outcomes for people who struggle with depression." - Dr. Keith Dobson, Advisor and a world-renowned expert on CBT. He's been president of the International Association for Cognitive Psychotherapy and the Academy of Cognitive Therapy and the author or editor of over 15 books on CBT.


UpLift provides you 12 interactive sessions that are around 45 minutes long each week. In the sessions, you'll be answering questions, doing mental exercises, and getting customized feedback and guidance.

Here are some of the sessions you'll work through:

- The Emotional Equation
- Positive Activities
- Lies Depression Tells You
- Recognizing Thought Errors
- Confronting Thought Errors

After the sessions, you'll unlock tools in your toolbox.


The toolbox contains tools that enable you to apply the skills you learn in the sessions to your daily life.

Here's a sample of some of the tools you'll unlock with UpLift:

- Problem Solver
- Mood Journal
- Trigger Plan
- Thought Errors
- Reframing Struggles
- Goal Trainer
- Mood Boosters


Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a type of psychotherapy that was developed in the 1960’s, based on the idea that modifying thought and behavior patterns was more important than understanding the psychological origins of behavior.

Because this new method does not require the presence of a therapist, attempts were soon made to automate the process, first with “bibliotherapy” (CBT self-help books), and then with “CCBT,” or Computerized Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

UpLift is a new generation of CCBT (now called “iCBT”). UpLift uses our own proprietary programming technology to make it dynamic and responsive and modern UX design to make it a pleasure to use, while maintaining tried-and-proven CBT methods at it's heart.


UpLift is free to download and the first session is free of charge. You can unlock all of the sessions and the entire toolkit via an auto-renewing subscription with a 7 day free trial. There is a single subscription option:

$69.99 / year or equivalent in your local currency.

Payment will be charged to your iTunes Account at confirmation of purchase. Your subscription of 1 year will automatically be charged for renewal within 24 hours prior to the end of the current period at the same subscription length and price unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24 hours before the end of the current period. Your subscription may be managed and auto-renewal may be turned off by going to your Account Settings after purchase.

It does so many things

Where can I begin with this app. I came into it skeptical, really. But after my first good long session? I was wowed at how seriously and how in depth UpLift tackles depression and anxiety. And gives you tools to combat it.

The price point was difficult for me; my mental health conditions leave me disabled so I’m on a fixed income. I was able to work something out with the team that we were both happy with, and I couldn’t have done it if they hadn’t been transparent in a reply to another review. This is a caring company that wants to genuinely help people improve their mental health.

So if you can, buy the sub, it’s worth it. You get real CBT lessons, mood boosters, a mood journal, a tool that tracks your triggers, and much more I haven’t unlocked yet!

If you have doubts, contact UpLift, they’ll happily talk to you about how it works and keeps working even after the last session.

Space your sessions out like you would normal therapy so you have time to do the homework they give you! Don’t worry, it’s good homework. :)

Try this app even if you’re skeptical like me. Be the end of the trial, you’ll love it or hate it. And I think you’ll love it if you’re really in need of a lift.

Educational, applicable and responsive

I like how responsive this app is to what you’re writing. It suggests advice or info that relates to the info you enter. Offers easily applicable suggestions that are helpful and practical, and gives many options so you can do what feels most comfortable. It’s also very patient and suggests you take your time with each exercise.

I have been suffering from depression and anxiety for more than a year. This app has been helpful for reframing my thoughts and alleviating some symptoms. The owners have been very kind and supportive when I emailed a question to them.
