“Honestly, it was way better than expected. I am not going to lie I used to use ChatGPT for my problems and the platform is way more personal and I feel like I'm talking to a real person. It gave me recommendations that I can ACTUALLY use in my day to day life.”

Kayla B (Junior)

“Most of my mental health concerns are relatively minor so I don't feel the need to schedule an in-person appointment as it is less convenient, but this would offer services at any time of the day.”

Mia H (Junior)

“It’s a more low-pressure environment for those who may find seeing an actual person about their personal issues intimidating and vulnerable. I like knowing that it's a completely judgement free zone since it's AI.”

Hannah M (Junior)

What is Wayhaven and how does it work?

The Wayhaven app is a fully adaptive AI-counselor specifically for college students. It functions as a personal mental wellness coach, providing personalized chat therapy based on the best practices of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and mindfulness. Designed to address the unique challenges faced by college students, the Wayhaven app is more than a basic chatbot: it's a companion for adapting to college life, managing homesickness, and fostering social connections, and more.

Is the service available 24/7?

Absolutely! We understand that students have varied schedules and mental wellness needs can arise at any time. The Wayhaven app responds instantly, 24/7, providing continuous and immediate support whenever you need it. Whether it's late at night, early in the morning, or any time in between, Wayhaven is here to offer confidential and understanding guidance.

Is the service confidential?

Yes, confidentiality is Wayhaven's first priority. The app is designed to be a safe and private space where you can freely discuss your mental health concerns without fear of judgment or breach of privacy. Your personal information and conversation history are securely protected, allowing you to engage in therapy sessions with complete peace of mind.

What if I need immediate help?

If you or someone you know is experiencing an emergency or crisis and needs immediate help, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.
