Kooth (www.kooth.com) is a free, safe, anonymous online mental health service for any young person aged 10-18 years in West Yorkshire. It is accessible 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and provides access to chat sessions with BACP-accredited counsellors.
But Kooth is so much more than just having chat sessions. Young people can get peer-to-peer support, as well as get involved with activities designed to improve emotional wellbeing and resilience. Young people are able to share their experiences safely, and everything contributed to the community is thoroughly moderated by the online team who guarantee there won’t be any trolling, bullying or judgement – they also won’t be allowed to share any personal details with each other.
Kooth is not a replacement for any in person support for a young person; rather it is an additional means of accessing further support. If you’d like to learn more about Kooth, please fill in this booking form.
