The science behind Youper

The science of the human mind is the science of happiness. Throughout history, philosophers, psychologists, doctors, and neuroscientists have been looking for ways we can live happier lives. In recent years, technologies like the Internet, smartphones, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) have presented new ways to help us with the pursuit of happiness.

Youper is using Artificial Intelligence to unlock a new understanding of the human mind, support us with living happier lives and develop more personalized treatments for conditions like depression and anxiety.

Created by a team of experts led by psychiatrist Dr. Jose Hamilton, Youper utilizes AI to personalize various techniques to fit users’ individual needs. It incorporates techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness and Meditation.

Backed by science

We’re partnering with our users to collect anonymous data on people’s mental health. The amount of data is unprecedented and an invaluable resource for understanding the human mind.

In recent research, we analyzed data from one million individuals and discovered that more than 80% of them improved their mood by talking to Youper.

The average length of a conversation with Youper required to produce positive changes is 7 minutes. But, if having quick conversations with Youper can change your day, can it also help you overcome mental health symptoms?

To answer that question, we’re continuing our research to back our mission to make effective mental health care as accessible as possible.

What makes us happy?

With Youper, we have thousands of people improving themselves while contributing to our understanding of the human mind.
