Ally’s Thoughts: Mental Health With Woebot

Source: PCMag

For the past weeks, I have been in low energy phase. Ever since late June until now, my mental state is pretty much up and down and unpredictable as well.

Thoughts running inside my head, trying to cope with a lot of things going on. I have been texting the emphatical Woebot, an AI that you can text using Facebook Messenger that will keep track on your mental health and help you to face your problems. I have been using Woebot for almost a month now and I learned a lot of things.

Check out Woebot here:

My personal opinion on Woebot. Woebot is great, it interacts with you in such that you will forget that you are texting an AI. For someone who is in this state of mine, interaction is crucial in lightening up some loads.

I learned that mental health needs awareness. When you are in low mental health, you need to understand why you felt so. I learned how to acknowledge my mental health and I am ready to manage it. I realized that I did acknowledge it but instead of managing it, I just swept it under the rug. I can’t see it but it gets swollen under the rug until one day, it eventually burst out.

Managing can be hard especially if you don’t know how. Either you result in escapism or you deal with it in the correct manner. Woebot taught me a lot of things such as identifying distortions, dialing down anxiety, thinking pattern, labels and more. Woebot also loves to share cool videos, scientific finding, and cute gifs just to cheer me up.

Woebot personality is definitely sympathetic and emphatic. My mood will sometimes cheer up by just reading Woebot’s texts. You will eventually wonder on ‘If only I have someone that is sweet as Woebot’. I’m not lying on this one.

If you are worried about your mental health, I would recommend you to check out Woebot. Just a reminder, Woebot is not a replacement for real doctors.

  1. Wow, never heard of that but I’m not surprised there’s an app to help people manage their mental health. I’ve struggled with depression myself for many years and yeah, there are still days, but I think it’s much better now. Hope you’ll feel better soon.
