The Happypillar Difference

Happypillar is the first of its kind--providing an evidence-based mental health support program using cutting edge AI and machine learning. We use speech recognition, natural language processing and other AI technologies to observe parenting skills and provide actionable feedback to parents.

Our voice and language analysis can understand specific words and phrases and our AI makes recommendations designed for your specific situation by licensed therapists. We recorded and analyzed over 14,000 minutes of parent and child conversations, and used that data to train these tools. Happypillar’s process
mirrors how therapists look at parent-child interactions in live sessions and give comments and feedback. Licensed child therapists are consistently reviewing our system to make sure it functions accurately.

We take privacy seriously and protect family data as if it were medical records. We follow industry leading security standards like HIPAA and SOC 2 to keep your family safe.

Happypillar was founded in 2022 by Sam Gardner and Mady Mantha, who realized they could use technology to bring the knowledge and expertise of licensed child therapists to families everywhere with ease and simplicity. Our founders believe that all families deserve access to evidence-based tools to help them thrive in communication and connection. 

Happypillar is here for you. Let’s build calmer, more connected families—together.
