AI Talking Therapy Programme
Wysa’s AI Talking Therapy Programme is delivered through conversational AI with built-in clinical safety guardrails
6-8 autonomous sessions for common mental health problems such as anxiety, low mood, panic and chronic pain
Programmes include psychoeducational content, together with daily practice of Cognitive Behavioual Therapy techniques with Wysa
Wysa is proven to create a therapeutic bond equivalent to that of a human therapist to give people confidence to open up
Clinical outcome measures are tracked weekly to monitor progress
Current NHS Impact
Scalability: Rapid mobilisation for large population groups with no limit to the number of users
Clinical risk management and containment: Users are provided with local and national crisis numbers, can create a safety plan, and access grounding exercises.
Risk can be flagged to clinicians in real time where NHS services have electronic patient record integration with Wysa
Anonymous option: Improved access to mental health care for hard-to-reach populations where stigma and risk of social judgement can otherwise prevent people from reaching out for support
Non-anonymous option: NHS Services are able to save time and resources by allowing patients to refer directly to local services releasing clinician time to care
Future NHS Impact
Enhance equal access to services by engaging people who otherwise would not come forward for support
Reduce burden on mental health services through the rollout of Autonomous AI Talking Therapies Programme for common mental health concerns such as anxiety, low mood, panic, and phobia
Reduce the prevalence of mild mental health problems through the provision of preventative self-management tools that become part of the user's lifestyle
Reduce strain on physical health primary care and avoid rejected subclinical referrals by providing immediate access to clinically effective mental health support
Reduce re-referrals with personalised relapse prevention plan following discharge
Direction to social and economic services and organisations which target social and economic issues that may otherwise hinder recovery, such as housing, debt management and social welfare
An ITN production on how Wysa helps people in NHS Talking Therapy pathways
More time for patients
"The Wysa e-triage allows our clinicians to focus their contact time with patients on the main presenting problem rather than other issues, or on collecting data for reporting but not central to the person’s concerns"
My Mood is Improving
"Knowing my mood had dropped, I chose Wysa from NHS-approved apps. It has been easy, so pleasant, to use daily and my mood is improving. Doesn't feel like "yet another To Do" which was adding to the problem…"
An alternative to face to face
"I would definitely recommend this Talking Therapy Programme for some of my NHS clients, for example if I am working with someone who is shy, they may prefer this to having to see someone face to face."
Simulating the experince of therapy
"I’ve had in person NHS therapy a few times now and I think that the app does a wonderful job at simulating the experience of therapy with another person. It’s really nice knowing that it’s always available for me"
