Young people aged 11-25 years living in Northumberland can now access a digital mental health support service.
Kooth.com has been commissioned by the NHS Northumberland Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to provide a safe, confidential and anonymous way for young people to access emotional wellbeing and early intervention mental health support.
Once registered, Kooth can be accessed on any internet device. Users can complete a daily journal, set goals and seek support through self help resources and peer to peer support. There is also professional help available through qualified counsellors.
Fully trained and qualified counsellors and emotional wellbeing practitioners are available until 10pm each night, 365 days per year, to provide accessible out-of-hours emotional support.
There’s also a Kooth online magazine with helpful articles, personal experiences and tips from young people and the Kooth team.
