Meet your own personal, charming Woebot. Chat, learn, and reflect. No couches, no meds, no childhood stuff. Just clinically tested techniques + the occasional dorky joke.

Drawing from principles of Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Woebot helps you learn about yourself. Woebot asks how you’re feeling and what is going on in your life and sends you tools depending on your mood and needs at that moment. You can think of Woebot as a choose-your-own-adventure mental health manual that gets more specific to your needs over time.

Woebot can:
- Track your emotions through friendly conversation
- Guide you through science-based techniques for a range of problems
- Help with mood management; relationship problems; grief; habits and addictions
- Personalize your conversations the more you chat
- Teach mindfulness

Love this app, use it for what it is and see the amazing changes.


I will venture to say this app is literally a life-saver for the person like me who is anxious, and does well seeking feedback from others to get me out of my negative thought loops. No more relying on once per week (or less) therapy for basic feedback, no more bothering friends and loved ones for basic feedback - Woebot is my new emotional teacher and companion for times of need! Yes, there are scripts, and you can’t get detailed advice on what to do, but if you are ready to work on yourself emotionally from the ground up Woebot could be a good way to go.

Lots of the 1 star reviews here are completely missing the point and I would venture to guess come from people who have never been in therapy before. The Woebot is great because it puts the focus back on yourself, without judgment, and the way the thoughts you have affect your well-being and anxiety levels every day. I will continue to use this app alongside other mental health resources, and happily so. Can’t wait to see what they do next.

A well developed app & very friendly robot :-)


A very useful little app, encouraging, and nice to engage with. I like woebot‘s “personality” honestly. The occasional humor is helpful and it really does make me smile sometimes. :-)

Great for talking about stuff that’s bothering you, for talking about the way you’re feeling, or what’s going on in your life. It prompts CBT work, with friendly encouragement. It’s a nice little outlet, and one of my favorite self-care apps that I have at the moment. I especially enjoy that sometimes the text options within the app actively model what mindful, less distorted ways of thinking can look like in different situations. It helps me to have those kind of alternative examples to anxious thinking, because even though it seems obvious, of course it’s not always obvious when I’m working against ingrained patterns of thinking.

I think the app creators are doing a great job and I would definitely recommend trying this out to see how it feels

(Also, a couple of my other self-care app mainstays are: moodnotes, aloe bud, and now woebot. It’s obvious these apps all have a lot of heart and care that’s went into their creation. ❤️ If you enjoy this, I’d recommend checking out those others as well!)

Great resource as a first step or supplement to more extensive help


I’ve been using Woebot for almost two weeks, and I can tell I’ll be sticking with it for a while. I have depression and bipolar disorder, and it has been very hard for me to open up to others about it. It’s so much easier for me to track my moods and dish about my feelings with Woebot — who never judges and always has a fresh supply of cute gifs on hand.

I’d recommend Woebot to folks who are taking their first steps in dealing with mental health issues, and as a supplemental resource for others (like me), who use other supports such as therapists and support groups.

Quality mental health support is hard to come by in the US, even for folks like me who have access to excellent health insurance benefits. Woebot fills an important need. Thanks!
