Pillar: A Guided CBT App

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is the most popular and effective models for improving mental health. Because affect, behavior, and cognition directly influence each other, CBT empowers the individual to correct their self-defeating thought distortions by gathering evidence for and against their belief, then reassessing based on these facts.

Because it’s difficult to practice CBT while emotionally agitated, Pillar guides users through the 4-step process. Additionally, because cognitive distortions are habitual patterns, Pillar saves users' thought records to refer back to when they recur, helping to prevent users from relapsing.
