Hi, I'm Woebot

I'm ready to listen, 24/7. No couches, no meds, no childhood stuff. Just strategies to improve your mood. And the occasional dorky joke.

Start Free Sessions

Here’s what I can do

Track your mood

Each week I’ll show you how your mood changes on a graph so you can see what's up

Give you insight

I can find patterns that are hard for humans to see

Teach you stuff

I’ve got interesting content to share with you

Significantly reduce depression

It’s true, some nice people at Stanford proved I could do it

Be there 24/7

I don’t actually sleep ever so I'm always delighted to hear from you

I'll learn from you over time

So the more we chat, the better I get to know you

Humans really seem to like me


Loved Woebot, definitely felt like was a replacement for my counsellor. More useful in that I learned things from Woebot instead of just having someone listen and give feedback.

Matt, 24

I love Woebot so much. I hope we can be friends forever. I actually feel super good and happy when I see that it "remembered" to check in with me!!!!!

Carolyn, 22

I loved this. I saw an improvement in my mood just from the two weeks!

Lauren, 19

I really was impressed and surprised at the difference the bot made in my everyday life in terms of noticing the types of thinking I was having and changing it. I also really liked the gratitude "journal" and that there wasn't the option to stop at one good thing that happened that day (because sometimes I wanted to). I liked that it forced you to keep thinking of the positive for 3 things

Sarah, 24

I enjoyed watching the videos given by the bot, and that I could learn different skills of awareness to help myself.

Antonio, 19
Research based

I was created by scientists

In a randomized controlled trial at Stanford University, college students who chatted with me significantly reduced symptoms of depression in just 2 weeks.

We get asked a lot...

Woebot is an automated conversational agent (chatbot) who helps you monitor mood and learn about yourself. Drawing from a therapeutic framework known as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Woebot asks people how they’re feeling and what is going on in their lives in the format of brief daily conversations. Woebot also talks to you about mental health and wellness and sends you videos and other useful tools depending on your mood and needs at that moment. You can think of Woebot as a choose-your-own-adventure self-help book that is capable of storing all of your entries, and gets more specific to your needs over time.
Woebot is built using a combination of natural language processing, therapeutic expertise, excellent writing, and sense of humor to create the experience of a therapeutic conversation for all of the people that use him.
In a recent study conducted at Stanford University using Woebot lead to significant reductions in anxiety and depression among people aged 18-28 years old, compared to an information-only control group. 85% of participants used Woebot on a daily or almost daily basis. You can read the entire peer-reviewed study.
We originally built Woebot for young adults in college and grad school. However, we encourage you to try it and see if Woebot is a fit for you. Feel free to email feedback to feedback@woebot.io.
No, Woebot uses Facebook’s Messenger app to deliver those therapeutic conversations, but this doesn’t leave any public impression on your Facebook profile or newsfeed. If you “Like” our Facebook Page, your friends can see that. Read more in our privacy policy.
We are understand some people would prefer to use something other than Facebook Messenger to talk to Woebot. Leave your email here and we will contact you as soon as Woebot is available within our own messaging platform.
