The Woebot mental health chatbot was originally created by Stanford psychologists and has now been used in over 120 countries. Woebot uses one of the gold standards in therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). These techniques are applied to help the patient with everything from depression to anxiety and more.
In 2021, they were granted a Breakthrough Device Designation for their digital therapeutic for postpartum depression (PPD). The Woebot mental health ally is powered by decades of research in psychology and advanced AI that can help assess mental health, depression, anxiety and other problems. It uses Natural Language Programming (NLP) to speak conversationally with the individual, helping to form a more social bond.
