Description

Youper is an emotional health assistant powered by AI. It claims that it can help you feel less anxious, less stressed and less blue. The app offers features such as basic conversations to uplift your day, guided personal meditations and a tracker to allow you to monitor your moods and emotional health.

 

Overview

Youper isn’t just an app created with hopeful intentions, it also has clinical support. Youper uses research methods across every U.S. state to determine factors that influence behaviors and ultimately make people happier. The app even uses artificial intelligence (AI) to help people achieve their goals.

Backed By Science

If you’re skeptical about how well Youper actually works, they provide extensive data to ease your concerns. According to the app, average length of a conversation with Youper to make a positive change is only 7 minutes. Furthermore they have data that indicates using the app only once a week reduces symptoms of depression and anxiety.

 

How To Become Happier

Youper employs an original method of using an ‘Emotional Health Atlas’ to discover the most common emotions in different states across the U.S. You can search the atlas by emotions (ie. happiness), gender, job status, and timeframe (i.e. last 60 days).

 

Assessments

Multiple assessments are also utilized to determine emotional influences. The Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9) measures depressive symptoms, while the Generalized Anxiety Disorder scale (GAD-7) assesses how frequently anxious thoughts occur and the severity of these thoughts. Youper also uses the Social Phobia Inventory (SPIN) to assess the extent of social anxiety symptoms.
