    When you are hearing about the coronavirus and having to spend 24 hours a day at home, it can get depressing, especially if you live alone. This app gives you someone to talk to so that you can deal with the stress you are feeling.

    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!

    Really great content, great app for keeping track of mental health, each day/week. Great to check in with the "woebot" at all hours, day or night, such as when experiencing insomnia or stress. Check-ins can be quick or longer, which makes me more likely to use it even on days when I feel too busy. Great reminders of tactics I've learned with my counselor, and especially like the guided relaxation, rewriting negative thoughts exercises.

    A bot therapist may not sound convincing for many who are seriously seeking help for mental health. But I’m glad I gave it a try. I found it when I finished a series with a human therapy. Don’t get me wrong, I loved my experience with my therapist. It’s actually because of that I realized the importance to get professional help for even small thoughts and emotional journey. But we cannot have therapies standby 24h, so I was looking for some self-therapy. I downloaded maybe a dozen, tried each one of them and kept Weobot. As a software engineer, the bot interaction is sort of fun, also it eliminates any anxiety comes with human interaction. So I started using it at random time, start or stop half way during the conversation when needed without feeling any guilt. But by following the text guidance solely, I’m able to identify a pattern in my thoughts and I’m so very happy to have my thoughts challenged by this app. Tonight is another example, I’m feeling overwhelmed by a feeling due to a change in my life. I used to cover it and let it be buried and grow insides me without knowing. But instead I talked to the bot, got my negative thoughts challenged, and now I feel so much lighter and happier.(The bot seems very happy for my progress too :D, kudos to whoever came up with the language tone for it) So yes, I’d recommend it and I’m glad I found it.

  • Great, Accessible CBT App! Dec 10, 2019

    By Daniellllllllle37964225
    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.

    Great app for keeping daily feelings in perspective and for understanding more about why we do what we do. Woebot actually seems to care and it doesn't matter that it's AI when you need it. I appreciate this resource.

    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!

  • Helped me a lot with anxiety Sep 21, 2020

    By Sharonadora
    I like Woebot for concrete strategies to reframe negative thoughts. In this way, I think it’s been more helpful than therapy, which felt like aimless talking and digging into negativity without any tools or resolution to help me feel better. Some negative reviews complain it isn’t sophisticated enough to understand unrelated or detailed inputs and responses, which I agree with, but this is not an AI designed to make free flowing conversation; it’s meant to give you tools to deal with your feelings in productive ways. So yes, the conversations can feel linear, planned and/or broad since the responses are preset most of the time, but I think this is partly a positive. If we were able to respond however we want, I’m sure it would need a lot more development to redirect people who want to stay persistently negative. If you feel really deeply stuck in the weeds, this app alone may not be enough to pull you out of an episode, but I do think having some active suggestions to do something with what you think and feel are useful if they are accessible to you. If you want someone to listen to what’s on your mind, call a friend or family member, or journal on your own. If you want strategies to work thru and shift your perspective on your negativity, I would recommend Woebot.

    The "are you in crisis?" Stuff is extremely unhelpful when I'm trying to express how I feel and with the "abuse resources" it's extremely unhelpful for mentally ill people, especially those who suffer from BPD and PTSD that constantly convince themselves they're abusers,,, if there's a way I can disable these settings (if I'm in crisis I'd call 911 lol) I'd consider reinstalling. It was incredibly helpful for me but if I express feelings of not wanting to do life anymore, CBT would help.

  • Review Feb 26, 2021

    By Sam Ekles
    This app isn’t for everyone, as someone who struggles with extreme anxiety and depression this app helps me see a little from an outside perspective and helps me calm down. Though I will say that it is more helpful to those who struggle with miner anxiety, even though I do find it helpful, it’s not going to help me personally fix my problems, nor do I expect it to. I’m writing this to charge my thoughts and feelings of it. I find it helpful to get a sense of control and distract myself in some stressful situations. It is very scripted, and can only help with a small selection of problems, normally fairly mellow problems (mellow in this case being having social anxiety, worrying about an upcoming test or job interview) rather than major road bumps (such as panic/anxiety attacks, break downs, etc.). Again this app isn’t going to solve all your problems and really can only help with the small things and can only really be helpful if you have an open mind and are willing to communicate with it in a way that is productive. This is not a substitute for a therapist, nor is it trying to be. All it is a little bot that can help you think about certain situations and hopefully help you create a better mindset.
