The science behind Youper

Youper is using Artificial Intelligence to unlock a new understanding of the human mind and support us with living happier lives.

Created by a team of doctors, scientists, and engineers led by 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 researchers around the world and with our users to collect anonymous data on people’s mental health. The amount of data is unprecedented and an invaluable resource for pushing forward the science of 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.

On average, Youper requires a seven-minute conversation to produce positive changes. 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. The Emotional Health Atlas is one of our research projects that is generating insights about the most common emotions in each state across the U.S. and the factors influencing moods and behaviors.
