Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I choose Youper?

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has been proven time and again as the most effective therapy for anxiety and depression, but it hasn’t been available to many people. 

Youper makes CBT skills accessible by combining caring providers who really listen to you with 24/7 chat to support you anytime you need it.

Who are you?

We are clinicians, engineers, designers, and caregivers led by world-renowned therapist Andrea Niles, Ph.D., and psychiatrist Jose Hamilton, MD. Above all, we care deeply about your health and happiness. We have dedicated our lives to making mental health care accessible for everyone, one person at a time.

Why Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)?

CBT is the most effective therapy for anxiety and depression. It helps you understand patterns in your emotions, thoughts, and behaviors that may be contributing to your anxiety and depression. Once you find those patterns, CBT helps change your thinking, take control of your emotions, and change your behavior — to feel better and reclaim your life.

How long does it take to feel better?

People often see improvements as fast as two weeks after beginning our program. Youper extends the power of CBT to your daily life, so the more you engage with the process and practice the skills, the faster you’ll see improvements.

Most importantly, each person has their own timing and we respect that. You’ll set goals with your provider, check in regularly, and monitor your symptoms to see how you’re progressing

Can I cancel?

Yes, and we hope you do! When you’re feeling better, you can opt to move to our Support or On-demand plans, or cancel your subscription at any time. You can also re-subscribe at a later date if you need it. We’ll be here for you.

What about medication?

If you’re considering medication, you can subscribe to the Medication Plan, and schedule an appointment with a clinician for assessment, diagnosis, and prescription if needed. The Medication Plan is currently available in California and Texas, and we’re actively working through each State’s unique process to make it available in other states as well.

How much does this cost?

You can get started for $36 per month.

Do you take insurance?

Youper is designed to be affordable with or without insurance. Most likely, your subscription will cost less than your insurance co-payments and without the hassle that insurance often brings.

How do I get started?

Start a mental health assessment and tell us what’s going on so we can understand your needs and provide the care you deserve
