Youper vs. eMoods
Youper brands itself as your “Emotional Health Assistant.” This app utilizes AI to help its users track their moods and monitor their emotional health. Youper also collects anonymous data from its users 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.”
Upon opening the app, users are prompted with a chatbot.
It is here that they log their mood and what is contributing to it. When a user shares their emotions with the chatbot, their responses are charted on a graph to show patterns over time.
Youper also offers guided meditation, personality tests and helps users track their goals. In addition, it helps users arrive at new thought patterns by incorporating techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and mindfulness.
