Kooth is a mental health and wellbeing platform that offers online text based counselling support. Not only do we offer access to counselling, at Kooth we feature self help tools including online journaling, goal setting and mindfulness techniques. We also have a community space on our Kooth magazine and discussion boards where young people can give and receive advice and support from others their age.

We are commissioned, and therefore free to young people at the point of need, by the local ICB who are keen to make sure every young person aged 11-18 in Essex is aware of their access to this platform. 

We are a website at www.kooth.com that is accessible on all browsers and through all devices, including mobile, tablet and desktop.

Kooth is somewhat different from traditional support services that may not be available after the end of the working day.  We are staffed by fully trained and qualified counsellors who are available until 10pm each night, 365 days per year. We've found that over 70% of contact with the service is made by young people after traditional office hours.

With no long waiting times or referral process, Kooth is a fantastic way for young people to get the help and support they need, when they need it, rather than having to wait long periods for an appointment.
