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.
1 in 5 children and young people suffer from mental health illness in any given year. At Kooth, we believe every young person has the right to thrive and to access high quality mental health care.
Kooth.com is commissioned by the NHS, Local Authorities, charities and businesses to provide anonymous and personalised mental health support for Children and Young People.
As Kooth plc expands, we are broadening our horizons to offer our information webinars on a national scale to all professionals interested in finding out more about the services we offer.
We will be running two information webinars for you to discover more about our Kooth and Qwell services and gain resources to support you when signposting young people to these services. If you work with young people aged 18 – 25, these webinars have been designed with you in mind.
We recognise there can be a service provision gap that young adults may fall through during the transition between child to adult services. By gaining signposting knowledge of our service access for 18-25s, you can help us to bridge this gap so that no young adult slips through the cracks and loses their access to mental wellbeing support.
As of July 2021, Kooth.com offers anonymous and free access to mental health and emotional wellbeing support, available to both children and young adults in 91% of commissioned areas across England, 55% of Wales, and a number of areas in Scotland.
Qwell.io offers support to adult cohorts and is available to over 1.5 million adults in the UK.
In our webinars you will discover ways Kooth and Qwell can help to support the mental health and emotional wellbeing of young adults. We will also cover our clinical processes and safeguarding procedures.
Each webinar will include:
An overview of issues experienced by 18 – 25 years with a member of our Clinical team
An overview of Kooth.com and Qwell.io
Q&A with the Kooth team
The webinars will be delivered via MS Teams and the dates and times for these are as follows:
Tuesday 18th January 2022 @ 11am – 12pm
Wednesday 26th January 2022 @ 3pm – 4pm
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to the Senior Kooth Engagement team on firstname.lastname@example.org
