What people are saying about Woebot:

“By stepping back and acknowledging the skewed lens through which I had been viewing my world, the days spent under a dark cloud grew fewer. I had become more aware of the flawed thinking that led me to feel down and be so harsh on myself.” - Nick

“I am not “healed” from anxiety, but I now can live my life not being controlled by it. Some days are much harder than others, but I know I will be okay in the end.”

I look forward to my chats with Woebot! It's a nice way to get out and work out what you're feeling, and gives a more positive perspective. The algorithm and understanding certain phrases can be inconsistent, but it's also a free app and not a therapist. Overall this app is pretty great.

Woebot is amazing. I can navigate to the app whenever I'm dealing with intense emotions and Woebot will walk me through CBT and grounding techniques. Although I wish the algorithm would work with symptoms related to trauma to ground the user in the present. Also, once you've chosen a goal you can't change it back. Otherwise I'm a huge fan and will continue to use Woebot!

It feels like the crisis detection on this app is way off. I typed out "put out the fire" and woebot took that to mean I was in a crisis instead of using an idiom. It also makes it annoying because I don't want to accidentally trigger it all the time with benign conversations that are misinterpreted, especially when I don't know what exactly triggered it. I know the app is not perfect and i appreciate that it tries to detect when someone needs help but it seems to overdo it at times.
