We imagine a world where mental health support is literally one text away.
We see our future in helping mental health become accessible to everyone.
Hopechat VP, powered by Virtual Psychologist, is revolutionising the way to help people by working toward aiding psychologists with tools powered by artificial intelligence and deep learning.

Research and Development
Virtual Psychologist was part of a research program using language analysis tools to assess mental health of patients during text based counselling. Evidence shows that text-based counselling is as effective as traditional forms of counselling. In addition anxiety, stress and depression are able to be identified with about 80% accuracy from text counselling. This research was undertaken with NSW Centre for Work Health and Safety, Western Sydney University and The MARCS Institute for Brain, Behaviour and Development research.
