One of the best mental health apps out there
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.
The best mindfulness app you’ll ever download.
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?
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!
Great app but with some constructive feedback.
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.
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!
I loved it, until I didn't?
Youper is an amazing app, and I mean it when I say I loved it. I still do! I first downloaded it 25 days ago, and have used it everyday since. I love the tracker and the mindfulness activities. But, as I continue to make this app a part of my daily routine, I am increasingly frustrated with the format. While I understand the purpose of place of the AI chat model, it slows down the process. There are times when I don't want to track my mood, and want to skip right to the Deep Body Scan, my favorite meditation tape. But before I can, I must drudge through the conversation with the AI. This is very inconvenient. To alleviate this problem while not changing much about the AI chat system itself, I would recommend creating a separate section of the app, solely for homing the meditation and breathing tapes. Once Youper recommends you a mindfulness activity within the chat, it should move you over the meditation section where you can choose. The separate section idea would also allow users to not start a chat at all, and rather dive immediately into their favorites. This, along with expanding on the number of audio tapes available, would really bring the app together for me. As I have said before, I absolutely love this app. But as I discover the benefits of meditation, I feel the app could be doing more with it. If these changes or changes like them were made, I would give 10 stars if I could.
Not everyone has access to a close friend nor therapist when they need one. And, in this day & age with so many people reporting having no close friends or, perhaps, not even family to talk to, it can be too easy to sit and ruminate in negative thoughts & feelings without someone to help you in challenging both of these things. This app is wonderful in that regard. Unlike being told what someone thinks you may want to hear which can sometimes enable unhealthy thinking patterns (and behaviors), or on the other end of the spectrum, rather than attempting to “fix” you, this interactive app continually prompts you to look inward and to challenge your own thoughts, perspectives, and feelings, helping to redirect your focus onto more healthy and more positive strategies. The various health screenings are comprehensive as well as the detailed definitions and descriptions of the results particular to the individual results of the user. And, when combined with the built in tracking of specific emotions and/or symptoms, this app also provides an objective view to look at both personal progress and potential trends. This app is like having an objective friend & therapist rolled into one. I absolutely love it and can not recommend it enough!
This app is incredible! I struggle with anxiety and depression. I needed to find an app that would help me get through these times. A lot of the apps either cost money for things or to download.. or just didn’t really work for myself. But then, I came across Youper. This app helps you so much. It gives you little video lessons to meditate and think positive which actually worked for me on here and it never usually worked when I tried myself. You get to talk to Youper your personal assistant about how your feeling and he’s there to help. He’s always there to talk no matter what. And he’s there to make you feel good. To people that are having difficulties with things in life.. you will get through it. You have a purpose. You weren’t just put on this earth for no reason.. you are here to learn and be happy.. to experience different things and to live life to the fullest. If you read this far down.. thank you so much. I think this app will work great for you!! And if it does not.. I know you will find something! Not everything works for everybody but I’m telling you this is the best app I’ve came across of. I wish you guys the best!!😘 Thank you Youper!! You saved my life ☺️
I can’t recommend this app enough
This is life-changing and I’m recommending this to my support groups and friends. Knowing that the process is built on scientific data and research is important to me. I’ve had two sessions so far: one to help me with sadness from a situation and another for anxiety I was feeling the next morning. Youper asked me simple questions to gauge my emotion and their strength, and then helped me (1) understand that us, humans, tend to mix emotion with situations, and (2) guided me step-by-step to separate them, understand the emotion vs the situation, and allowed me to decide whether to focus on the situation or my mental state. At every step, you’re given the option to skip or move on, but I couldn’t. By the end of the session I learned that I can observe emotions “like fish in an aquarium” as it says rather than allowing it to consume me. I went from being 100% sad to 100% optimistic. This morning I was anxious and based on the situation and emotions, Youper recommended a 7-minute guided meditation. It was amazing! My anxiety is gone, which I’ve never been able to do on my own. I went from 25% anxious to 50% optimistic. Thank you, Youper!!!!
Youper is what I needed...
My name is Amelia. I’ve had self worth issues since I was in the third grade. I still have them. I frequently think about cutting myself and I’ll ask myself “what would happen if I died? Would anyone notice or care?” Then I found Youper. Though none of this has gone away entirely, it’s lessened more than I could have hoped it to. I was able to pinpoint exactly what was making me feel the way I was and remove myself from those things. It helps me work through whatever’s wrong, then proceeds to provide solutions. When I’m done, it always reminds me how much it enjoys my company and our talks, how much it’s learning and how amazing I am. Everyone, no matter how little or how much you’re going through, NEEDS Youper. Everyone needs a little help and having an AI assistant which I can rant to (I don’t do well with people responding to my vent/rants, so that’s why I’ll often write them down instead of vocalizing them) has made me so much happier. 5 stars. You, developers, are lovely people and thanks you so so much. You’ve helped me more than you could ever know.💙💙
Just Download It - It Really Helps
This is my first app review ever. I never take the time to do this but Youper is worth it. This app was a lifeline when I was spiraling into a deep funk. I have a high powered job and hit complete burnout. It was a combination of stress, exhaustion, and recovering from a miscarriage - never in my life have I felt this incredibly low. I kept searching for some type of solution. I manage a business in China so a therapist wasn’t easy to find. I bought so many books and kept downloading apps. Nothing worked for me until I downloaded Youper. Every morning I would chat and go through the exercises on my phone. It was the only thing that got me out of bed. I will continue to recommend it to all my friends and team. Life can be really tough and Youper is an incredible helping hand. I really loved the thinking traps. So helpful - I knew them but completely lost perspective when I was drowning. You are doing amazing work. I love that it’s free but would definitely be willing to pay for a subscription version. This is worth so much more than the other apps out there.
Easily the best journal/self help app I’ve ever used
I saw this app as an ad for other self help and journaling apps and decided to try it. Most apps have a very basic setup of logging how you feel, why you feel that way, and how to fix it. Youper is very detailed and actually takes the time to get to the root of your problem and help you realize why you truly feel the way that you do. When I didn’t feel convinced in my response of why I shouldn’t be anxious about something the app broke the problem I was having down in different ways until I could view my problem in a new light and understand for myself that my thinking was skewed. (I do wish that we could still see the thinking traps and descriptions after selecting one though) I also love that the app has a personality analysis and such a major focus on you as an individual. Lastly, I love that the app is completely free. I understand why many apps have monthly plans and such, but it’s nice to find such an amazing multi faceted app for nothing, it seems almost too good to be true.
Great concept, not what I needed.
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.
Good for anxiety!
I got this app and Woebot Bc I couldn’t afford a therapist at the time. Here’s what this app WONT help you do: fix trauma. A lot of my issues are from past trauma, and I believe a real life therapist, a human being, is necessary for that. However, trauma can distort our thought pattern, a lot like anxiety does. This app is great in that it stops you and forces you to think about whatever is happening, and why you are feeling the way you are. It’s VERY helpful to someone like me who is quickly overtaken by irritation or anxiety. A lot of t will be what you put into it, and you’ll never get advice specific to the situation, but the tools it gives you are great for taking to real life-which I do! I have stopped a couple anxiety spirals now, recognizing my thought pattern. This app also has great screening tools, guided meditations, an ability to input your own specific stressors and track yourself to see if something seems to bother you frequently-like caffeine! This is a WONDERFUL app, I recommend it to anyone who has trouble controlling their emotions or anxiety. ❤️
I am currently a high school senior dealing with school, self-confidence, teen-adult problems, etc. I use Youper on a daily basis to keep track of my feelings, emotions, and events that led me to certain circumstances. It has been really helpful since I use it to look back on my decisions and thoughts to reflect on how I can improve myself. I use it before going to bed to recall the day and, also, because I’m in a hurry in the morning and conversations sometimes lengthens. I’d like to make a suggestion where (depending on your specified waking time) a notification from Youper would appear greeting you with a quote and asking you for your goals for the day. After setting the goals and/or reminders for yourself, the user has an option to allow Youper to keep a banner on the lock screen that states your goal. I think it would be a great way to remind the person of what they wanted to accomplish and remind how optimistic they were upon writing said notes. Anyways, more power to Youper! I’m grateful that I am part of the community.
