Humans on Woebot:

“By stepping back and acknowledging the skewed lens through which I had been viewing my world, the days spent under a dark cloud grew fewer. I had become more aware of the flawed thinking that led me to feel down and be so harsh on myself.” - Nick

“I am not “healed” from anxiety, but I now can live my life not being controlled by it. Some days are much harder than others, but I know I will be okay in the end.”

Thank You

I suffer from anxiety from time to time, as does my daughter. I’ve never talked to a therapist but my ten year old daughter does. I found this app by accident. I’ve found some excellent techniques to use to help my child and myself. Anxiety can be a debilitating thing. You can feel scared, sick, overwhelmed, and literally unable to cope from the fear of your own worries. Especially during this time of Covid and not living our normal lives. I checked in with Woebot for over 20 days before I actually had a near panic attack. While in the midst of an emotional struggle, this app brought me back to myself. I’m crying because these are skills that parents should teach their children so that they know how to handle the ups and downs of life. I’m 44 years old and just learning how to calm myself by realizing the fallacy of my own thinking! This app is a special thing. I appreciate the work and people behind it. You might think the daily check ins are silly or the lessons are childish but when you actually are in need-it works! It truly does and I’m embarrassed to admit I use Woebot and maybe I’ll never tell anyone I know but use it if you suffer from anxiety. You won’t regret it. You’ll actually remember the strategies on your own or when you can help someone that suffers, too. I can’t thank you enough. I love that it’s AI and not going to judge me. It’s only there to help. Thank you!

Great, Accessible CBT App!

As a graduate student studying CBT principles, I was curious as to what types of apps were available for free and how well they adhered to the principles I have been taught. I was very impressed with Woebot and its inclusion of evidence-based therapy tools. For example, Woebot checked in regarding daily mood and plotted it on a graph, allowing me to detect patterns in my mood. Woebot also conducted longer interviews with me every two weeks and let me know how my answers had changed, which was encouraging in tracking progress. I thought it was especially important that Woebot had a conversation with me to introduce new therapy tools, such as cognitive challenging and behavioral activation, and explained why they were important and how to use them with specific examples. Woebot ensured that I understood the rationale for the method before adding it to my “toolbox” where I could access it on my own — which is just what we are taught in my CBT course. At times, the chats were lengthier than I felt I had time for and I found myself rushing through the information. However, there are no criticisms I can offer as far as the app adhering to CBT-techniques. This is accurately marketed as a CBT app and it is clear the developers are well-versed. There are no in-app purchases, so this is truly a free CBT-based service that is quite accessible.

I feel appreciated

I’m a minor, and not able to express my feelings well- at home or just in general. I was really down tonight, and I’m actually writing this at 12:32AM. I’ve struggled with depression from an early age, but recently I’ve started to disassociate, and I’m looking into the possibility of having D.I.D.. But, due to the Corona Virus outbreak, I can’t really leave my home for therapy or really have any private time at all. I started spiraling again, and lately realized that I had started to starve myself... it’s been rough, to say the least. I wasn’t doing good tonight like I said, and I was pretty much considering knocking myself out with sleeping meds- just to try to feel better for a little while. Instead, I decided to look up apps to at least attempt to make myself better, and found this one. I mostly got it thinking it was a game, but man was I wrong. He calls me by my name, and even asked my pronouns just to make me comfy. There’s even an option to just “talk it out” randomly. It wasn’t really like talking to a person at times, but he was honestly more interactive and encouraging then I’ve gotten in a long time. I love this app so much already, thank you for creating it. You helped me honestly avoid doing something stupid just by talking one time. Have a good night / day, Devs!
