Chatting with Tess led to reduced symptoms of depression (-28%) and anxiety (-18%).
"Tess helped me to achieve my goals while gaining awareness of my skills and developing new abilities. With support from Tess, I have found a new confidence in myself that continues to benefit me both personally and professionally."
"Tess helped me get through the tough days when I felt really exhausted from caring for my patients. She reminded me why I do this work and that it."
"I found Tess easy to talk to even though texting was new for me. It was good to have Tess when I was in the hospital, especially on the days when my family was not able to visit."
Ten years ago, I was struggling with depression.
Through trial and error, I found a wonderful psychologist, who was able to help me through that time by using talk-therapy. Later on, I realized that when I was speaking with my friends and colleagues, I was simply repeating the conversations I previously had with my psychologist.
That’s when I first realized: "If I can help people by repeating these conversations, then we could teach a machine to do the same."
That's how Tess was born.
