Creating the most beloved AI Assistant on the planet

Youper was born from the idea that everyone can become the best version of themselves, like being a super you. In fact, Youper comes from the combination of the words You + Super! 🤩

We believe that all of us are pursuing happiness. However, we know that on our search, emotional and mental health issues can block the way and get us stuck.
Currently, it can take more than ten years for someone facing issues as such stress, anxiety, and depression, to get the help they need. Beyond that, more than 60% of those who face such issues don’t have access to effective solutions.

A psychiatrist, a software engineer, and a designer created Youper to be the first-responder for emotional health issues for people all over the world and to ensure that no one has to wait years to address their issues.

Youper is a personal assistant that users love and feel compelled to share with people they care about.
