Kooth - Online Mental Wellbeing Community

Kooth  provides online counselling and support to people aged 11-19. 1 in 5 children and young people suffer from mental health illness in any given year. At Kooth, we believe every young person has the right to thrive and to access high quality mental health care.

Many young people lean towards the Internet to receive support and advice which prompted the development of the website. Kooth provides support early, with professional counselling, peer-to-peer forums, self-help articles and mood tracking tools to help set personal goals.

What can you do on Kooth?

  • Young people can message a counsellor or schedule in live text-based chat sessions. Kooth is fully accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
  • It is available 365 days a year, from 12-noon until 10pm on weekdays and 6pm until 10pm on weekends.
  • Read articles with advice and guidance written by young people.
  • Interact with and get support from the Kooth community.
