"I have already had my eyes opened to so many new tools in only one forty minute session with the app."
"Thank you so much. I'm seriously about to cry because today's session was so important and useful to me."
A pilot study of 80 UpLift users showed that in just 1 month, those who stuck with the program had nearly a 50% reduction in depression scores that lasted.(1)
UpLift was developed by expert psychologists and leaders from the field of mobile mental health. It's based on Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, which has been used to treat people with depression for over 30 years.
"UpLift is strongly aligned with the principles and methods of cognitive-behavioral therapy. A carefully done study has clearly demonstrated its positive outcomes for people who struggle with depression." - Dr. Keith Dobson, Advisor and a world-renowned expert on CBT. He's been president of the International Association for Cognitive Psychotherapy and the Academy of Cognitive Therapy and the author or editor of over 15 books on CBT.

*COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY*
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a type of psychotherapy that was developed in the 1960’s, based on the idea that modifying thought and behavior patterns was more important than understanding the psychological origins of behavior.
Because this new method does not require the presence of a therapist, attempts were soon made to automate the process, first with “bibliotherapy” (CBT self-help books), and then with “CCBT,” or Computerized Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
UpLift is a new generation of CCBT (now called “iCBT”). UpLift uses our own proprietary programming technology to make it dynamic and responsive and modern UX design to make it a pleasure to use, while maintaining tried-and-proven CBT methods at it's heart.
UpLift is free to download and the first session is free of charge. You can unlock all of the sessions and the entire toolkit via an auto-renewing subscription. There are two subscription options:
*$29.99 for 1 month
*$44.99 for 3 months
Pricing may vary depending on the country. Payment will be charged to iTunes Account at confirmation of purchase. 24 hours before the end of the monthly subscription period, the renewal fee will be automatically charged and the subscription renewed unless auto-renew is turned off beforehand. Subscriptions may be managed and auto-renewal may be turned off in the Account Settings after purchase.

Ratings and Reviews
Expensive, glitchy, and not unique
My review can be summed up in all of its tasks and information is easily found in many free apps or online references. After spending 40 bucks for three months in a moment of desperation, I found it frustrating, confusing, and less useful than others I got for free.
I can't use it offline either, and now it's glitching so "resume session" takes me to change settings.
It's a good way to keep track of your moods and get tips from one place, but needs a major redesign for accessibility and content. Not worth the cost. I'll keep going with it as I paid for it, but it's only been a couple of days and it's already having problems.
Seems like a really neat program, but. . .
$30 a month is just more than I can afford.
I suffer from schizoaffective disorder that I treat with meds and DBT skills. Uplift really helps me to stay on track and stay healthy especially on my hard days.
