Kooth.com is a free, online counselling and emotional wellbeing platform which is available to young people aged 11-18 years in Stockton.
The Kooth website allows young people to gain anonymous access to advice, support and guidance on any issue that is affecting their wellbeing. From friendship or relationship issues, family disagreements or difficult home lives, to concerns around eating, anxiety, stress, depression, self- harm, suicide.
Their qualified counsellors are there to provide young people with the support they need, when they need it. Kooth.com’s live chat service is available from Monday to Friday 12 noon – 10pm, Saturdays and Sundays 6pm – 10pm and is accessible through mobile, tablet and desktop, completely free of charge.
As well as being able to talk to our counsellors, at Kooth.com young people can also connect with other young people in monitored forums or access self-help materials through our online magazine. The large variety of forum categories allows young people to anonymously share their issues and receive positive messages of advice and support from young people across the country. Because their forum posts are all checked before they go live on the site, they can guarantee every young person a safe and helpful experience.
