Woebot is an artificially intelligent chatbot that helps individuals monitor their mood and learn about themselves. Woebot uses evidence-based cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) techniques to equip users of the app with the tools they need.
Woebot asks people how they’re feeling and what is going on in their lives in the form of brief daily conversations. The chatbox has over 150 evidence-based lessons, exercises and stories from experts in clinical psychology. Woebot has been shown to reduce symptoms associated with anxiety and depression in just two weeks. The chatbot helps users think through situations with step-by-step guidance using methods from CBT.
The creators of Woebot are on a mission to make mental health radically accessible to everyone. Anyone with mild-to-moderate mental health issues might want to give Woebot a try. Woebot is now available locally in the Waterloo Wellington area. The free interactive app will help support counselling agencies in the area that specialize in mental health, youth engagement and development, family violence, individual and family counseling, credit counseling, settlement supports and collective wellness.
