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 12 noon to 10 am on weekdays and 6pm to 10pm at weekends, every day of the year on a drop-in basis.

Young people can access regular booked online counselling sessions as needed. Outside counselling hours’ young people can message their team and get support by the next day.

When young people 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.
