The impact of the coronavirus pandemic has meant that academic and social structures had to shut down. Lockdown happened. Teaching face-to-face stopped. Exams were cancelled. Some young people have felt that they did not get a chance to complete their work or see if they could reach their academic ambitions. So results day for some of our young people may have been difficult and many may have anxieties about their results and uncertainties going forward.Kooth is a free, safe, online mental health and well-being service that supports children and young people between 11 and 18 (up to their 19th Birthday) years of age. Counsellors are available online from 12noon - 10pm on weekdays and 6pm - 10 pm on weekends, every day of the year. To sign-up, go to www.Kooth.com; You can log on through mobile, laptop and tablet. Self-help materials and resources co-produced by other young people are also available.
There is a Kooth video link below, which explains how it works and the sign-up illustrations are attached as young people will first need to create a Kooth account before they can access the various wellbeing resources and access to online counselling.
