Kooth – opening the door for mental health support
Surrey CAMHS now offers preventative support to children and young people who don’t have a referral via Kooth. Kooth is a confidential and anonymous online service for young people, specifically developed to make it easy and safe for young people to access mental health support as and when they need it, while removing any associated stigma.
Once signed up, Kooth users have access to BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) trained counsellors available until 10pm, 365 days a year, peer-to-peer support through moderated forums, and a range of self-help materials, co-written by other young people.
Any young person aged 11 – 19 with a Surrey postcode can access the service for free.
