Introducing Tess™

Tess is a psychological AI that administers highly personalized psychotherapy, psycho-education, and health-related reminders, on-demand, when and where the mental health professional isn’t. Interaction with Tess is solely through conversation, exclusively via existing communication channels, such as SMS, Facebook Messenger, Web Browsers, and several other platforms. Tess is where the patient already is, and just a text message away. She is just a cell number; no app required, no smartphone required, zero friction.

Tess helps people overcome their emotional problems at any time of the day, without the need to make an appointment with a mental health professional, and without having to spend hundreds of dollars. Each mental health professional’s therapy, treatment and education approach can be encoded into Tess, creating a digitally uploaded version of the mental health professional, enabling them to care for their patients on a 24/7 basis, resulting in the timely treatment of the patient. She is massively scalable, without the need for additional hardware or software, and is multilingual, currently speaking English, Dutch, Arabic and Spanish.

Mental healthcare needs fixing

Today, mental illness affects one in four people at some point during their lives, and is often ignored and stigmatized. Many patients don't have access to timely, quality mental healthcare services when they need it, and for many, the cost of accessing such care is prohibitive. Also, mental health professionals have limited capacity in treating patients, and, in developing countries, mental healthcare services are practically nonexistent. X²AI’s mission is to change the status quo, and provide on-demand and accessible quality mental healthcare for everyone, regardless of geographic location or income level.
