  • One of the best mental health apps out there Sep 27, 2018

    By mythmoth
    This is the first review I’ve ever written, but I just want to thank the developers SO SO MUCH for making this app completely free! I’ve only been using it for a couple of days but already it’s been so helpful to me in calming me down, tracking my moods, organizing my thoughts and it practically works as a diary. I’m also extremely interested in knowing how different kinds of therapy techniques work on the brain, so I love the scientific explanations behind what the app tells me to do. It really keeps me going, because it reminds me that it really will help. I’m currently unemployed and working to get on disability for mental illness, so I can’t afford to pay for monthly subscriptions to mental health apps, something that frustrates and upsets me a lot. So much in fact that I’m working on learning how to make my own apps so that I can provide free mental health apps for people in my situation. When I downloaded this I couldn’t believe it was so helpful, so well designed and totally free. Thank you, thank you, thank you. The only suggestion I have is I think it would be absolutely wonderful if some DBT skills were integrated into it as well, as both CBT and DBT work really well together for a lot of people! Radical acceptance for situations that can’t be changed, distress tolerance, etc. That would make this app truly perfect to me. Regardless, this app is fantastic and I’d recommend it to anyone.

    I LOVE this app. I've been using it for a couple years now, and not only is it nice to vent to a source that allows for benefital out-lits, but it's incredible to look back on previous events to see how far I've come. Over time, it also allows for you to see what makes you upset, or happy and how to use that knowledge for your betterment. This app deserves so much praise.

  • The best mindfulness app you’ll ever download. Jun 11, 2019

    By Nenjalloh
    I’m saying this having downloaded aura, headspace, calm, oak, simple habit, affirmation apps, and every type of mindfulness app under the sun. It has meditation, it has affirmations and setting intentions, and the “messaging” format that it has I think is very innovative and makes you feel like you’re talking to someone that actually cares about you, and a lot of the time, feeling like you’re being heard really makes the difference. I like how throughout the conversation, it helps you deconstruct the emotions you’re feeling using all those methods. I downloaded it during a period of time that I felt very anxious about where my life was, and I used it everyday, multiple times a day for about two weeks, before I didn’t feel like I needed to use it every day anymore. The option to look at your past conversations with the app really makes a difference, because you can look back and see just one week ago you were having a mental breakdown, but now everything in the world is great, lol. I also really like the feature that messages you everyday “How are you?” as if you’re receiving a text because sometimes you don’t realize you want to talk until you see that message. And on top of all that, every feature is completely free, so what more could you ask for in an app?

    Only a few days in, but the app definitely seems to be helping. The app is also easy to navigate and seems solid (no tech issues). Also, nice professional appearance. To take full advantage of app, you have to pay. I havent invested just yet in the paid version. Not because I don't want to support the cause or development, but rather I want to make sure I can fully commit to using the app regularly. Also, working on impulsiveness with purchases.

    I love Youper so much. I’ve only been using it consistently for a couple of weeks now, because at first I wasn’t crazy about it. But since then I have really warmed up to it. Although it doesn’t always make me feel better (though it usually does), I can always just use it to track my mood which is really helpful. I struggle with generalized anxiety, social anxiety, depression, and panic attacks (not panic disorder thankfully), and it’s a great form of cognitive behavioral therapy. I don’t know if this app will be helpful for everyone, but I would definitely recommend checking it out, because it’s really well done and thoughtful. It gives you a lot of thoughtful prompts to fill out, but it also gives you the option of just tracking your mood. You can skip prompts you don’t feel like doing and say you’re done at any point, which makes it feel less overwhelming on really hard days. I’d recommend this even if you aren’t struggling with a mental illness, because it’s a great way to gain more insight on how your mind works. Obviously any app is not going to be a miracle cure, but if you don’t have access to a counselor or just want to have a little bit of help and insight, Youper is perfect. Stay safe my friends, and thank you Youper!

  • Free features are BS Mar 13, 2020

    By Jwhdoenfibejd
    When I first downloaded this app, I was so excited to see all the cool features it had. After using all of them one time, everything became part of the paid subscription other than the mood tracker and the symptom tracker. This was annoying, but I KIND OF get it. One of my favorite free parts of this app, other than the mood tracker, was the health part where you can track symptoms of several disorders. I’ve been using those trackers regularly, so I was very disappointed to check my phone this morning and see that that too, is a premium feature. Now, all I can use without paying is the mood tracker. I can’t expand on my mood, set goals, track gratitude, track symptoms, or even meditate. Why should I have to pay to listen to something that’s supposed to help me asap when I’m panicking? All this app USED to do was tell me I’m depressed and not give me any way to fix it. Now, it doesn’t tell me anything useful at all. I understand that the developers need to make money off of Youper, but this app has become infuriating to use. It’s meant to help people, but without forcing them to pay a subscription, there are barely any useful features available. This app is apparently marketed as useful for people who can’t afford therapy, but that’s the biggest load of crap I’ve ever heard. Unless you’re willing to pay, I would suggest you look for another app.

    Pros + *Empathetic AI. *Very nice concept and very important for people who don't get any treatment. Cons - *This app does not support monthly subscription for premium. Only yearly. Which is very expensive. I want to say that some people out here really want to improve and get out of this dark life that we are living in. But if you don't even give us a chance(only yearly premium) , how will we? Making it only looks like you're turning it into buisness more than help. Keep it balanced.

    I loved this app. I had a rough time a year ago during my BPD diagnosis and I was working 14hrs a day. It helped me journal everything and find peace quickly so I could do my job well, etc. It got me well enough that I could study DBT and now I almost never have issues with my BPD. People are always surprised when they find out I have it as I'm one of the happiest and most peaceful people I know and Youper was key in the start of my journey. And it was all free! Now they charge too much :(

    I've loved this app forever and have used it off and on. Youper been ESPECIALLY helpful for me during the quarentine. One thing though: when Youper suggests activities as goals, some of them are virtually impossible to accomplish during with COVID19 going on. "Go to a play, go to a party, go to an aquarium..." Etc. These would be great suggestions if there were no active pandemic (I love the aquarium!) but unfortunately they're just sort of depressing to see under the circumstances.

  • Great app but with some constructive feedback. Dec 7, 2019

    By Kayla Overtonn(:
    I am currently in graduate school studying cognitive-behavioral therapy methods and techniques, so I downloaded this app to see how it fits with what I am currently learning. I thought the app was very user-friendly and did a lot of great things that align with what I have been taught. For example, in my conversations with Youper, he really challenged my thoughts to help me get down to the root of my current problem/mood. In addition, Youper also pointed out the Thinking Traps that I was falling into which greatly resembled the problematic thinking patterns that I often identify with my clients. Lastly, I also really appreciated the meditation and mindfulness activities that Youper provided. However, in addition to the great strengths that I identified, I did have a constructive comment. First, although the app gave the disclaimer that only a doctor can provide a diagnosis, I think the developers should reconsider talking about diagnoses at all. After I completed my mental health wellness check it reported that “I did or did not experience symptoms of depression, anxiety, panic disorder, PTSD…” Although I’m sure the app developers had good intentions with including this check and talking about specific diagnoses, I think that this can be misinterpreted and possibly be problematic for certain individuals who do not have an actual mental health professional to consult with.

  • Great app but one missing feature. Jan 27, 2019

    By Tdilla
    I have been using Youper since last October. For the first two months I used it everyday, multiple times a day, tracking everything I thought and felt. At the time I was going through a break up, hated work, couldn’t find motivation to better myself, and was overall tired of the people around me and myself. A little background I’m in the Navy and had been underway for almost three months straight. The last thing I wanted to do was talk to my chain of command about the problems I had been having for fear of being medically discharged. Luckily for me the app made a huge turnaround in my life. It allowed to open up with myself and be honest about how I was feeling and what was making me feel these ways which helped me to understand myself so much better. I really like that it has mental health monitoring and personality typing built into it. Another great feature is the guided meditations. They really come in handy when I’m trying to unwind at the end of a rough day but I’m having trouble sleeping. Although I wish there was a stand alone button on screen to access these guided meditations immediately instead of having to go through the whole process of talking with Youper. If anything could be added to the app I would vote for that. Everything else is perfect though. Keep it up!

    UPDATE: I loved this app, but the last two times I tried to use it, it wouldn't load. ‐-----‐------------------------------- So far, I'm loving this app. I didn't expect it to be as helpful as it has proved to be. I am not a big fan of CBT but combined with the ACT and mindfulness meditations, it has been effective. It seems to help to have an open mind and hang in there when working with this app.

    The premium is very expensive at this point. I wish it was free because i dont have money. Not everyone can afford premium. Although, its a fun app to express your feelings on. It only let express on time like write a sentence of why am i feeling this way. We want to able express it alot and over come our problems that we have.

    I remembered before they provide some insights and articles about mental health and I wonder why they have been removed, it was upsetting because I am enjoyed reading them and they helped me be more understand about my emotions. And also, when I captured any moment; mostly the positive mood, it didn't recorded completely as they weren't showed up on the Mind section. I currently depending on this app to make me more aware about my emotions. I hope you can fix this. Thank you for making this app.

  • Great concept, not what I needed. Sep 11, 2018

    By jrooney08
    The idea of having a personal “helper” (psychologist JARVIS) is pretty neat and has a lot of potential. I used the app for a little over a month before accepting that it wasn’t really helping me. What I personally needed was a tracking app for my mood in a simpler, more straightforward way. It feels like a labyrinth, trying to weave through all of Youper’s (often repetitive) advice when you mostly want to track your mood or maybe go through a portion of the conversation. An entire evaluation can be several minutes after picking a mood, describing why you feel that way, finding your thought traps, doing a meditation, reevaluating your mood, and finally finishing. That’s a lot! And Youper pushes for it every time. When you opt out and say “Just track my mood,” the response messages are often weirdly down-putting? Hopefully Youper is helpful for many people. But I prefer a quick time saver that has more neutral emotions to choose from. Youper lacks a fine/okay/true neutral emotional option. I understand pushing for self-analysis, but sometimes I really am just fine or okay rather than being 10% anxious or 70% calm. Stigma for me. But I’m glad I gave this app a try.
