Quirk is a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy app designed to combat depression, anxiety and stress. The app is open source and the company is backed by YCombinator. CBT has 40 years of solid research behind it and Quirk aims to make treatment more accesible with an app available on iOS and Android.

In the app, users record their anxiety inducing thoughts and then identify any distortions that may be keeping them from thinking clearly. Next the user can confront the thought with reasons why that thought may be illogical. By taking a step back and observing their own thought process with the app, users will gradually be able to perform this exercise on their own and be able to navigate life without getting caught in anxious thought loops.
