Kooth.com - Online Support for Young People

 

Kooth.com - online support for young people We would like to remind you of the availability of our online service to support the wellbeing and resilience of your students.

 

Kooth is a web based confidential support service available to young people. Kooth provides a safe and secure means of accessing mental health and wellbeing support designed specifically for young people.

 

Kooth offers young people the opportunity to have a text-based conversation with a qualified counsellor. Counsellors are available from 12noon to 10pm on weekdays and 6pm to 10 pm at weekends, every day of the year on a drop-in basis. Young people can access regular booked online counselling sessions as needed. Outside of counselling hours young people can message our team and get support by the next day.

 

When students register with Kooth they will have support available to them now and in the future. Support can be gained not only through counselling but articles, forums and discussion boards. All content is age appropriate, clinically approved and fully moderated.

 

To find out more visit Kooth.com where young people can register and others can find out more about the service.

 

You can also view a short video about the service at:  Kooth 

 

 

 

If any of the schools would like further information on the tool, please contact Malcolm Connelly, Integration & Participation Worker at mconnelly@xenzone.com to arrange for him to come into your school to talk to staff and students on the offer.
