It's okay if you're looking for guided prompts to chat with. I downloaded it for my paranoid schizophrenia, and it does not help. It asked me to look for the positive and to set an intention. It does provide meditation, self care, and a journal, which are buggy. I was hoping for something open-ended and not text you tap, but it seems it hasn't changed from when I used it years ago. CBT and therapists (and the trauma from them) have only made my mental health worse, and this isn't the app for me.

It had me pick the categories I was interested in, took me to a page of exercise packs, then was totally unresponsive. If I hit the back button, there's a flash of a page that has a button to chat, but it goes straight back to the unresponsive page. Have uninstalled and reinstalled a couple of times, but still the same. I just lost my husband suddenly, and am desperately trying to find ways to cope with my pain. I guess Wysa isn't it.

This app used to be free. Back then, it was limited but good. I honestly felt like I benefited from using Wysa as a sounding board. Now, it's just another part of life reminding those of us less fortunate that we can't afford the help we need and will never get it without finding money to throw at therapists or apps. And to add insult to injury, the AI is not very good - far worse than I remember. It's repetitive, only responds well to premade responses, and frequently misunderstands things.

Apologies for any inconvenience. As the majority of our users are freemium users, we haven’t made any changes to our freemium version. But to sustain our operations and to provide the free version, we need to make some parts of Wysa paid. We're dedicated to improving user experience and value your input. Reach us at wysa@wysa.io for assistance.
