Supporting young people with emotional wellbeing and / or emerging mental health problems

A new online counselling and support service for young people aged 11 to 18 years is now available in Bradford district and Craven. The online service, called Kooth, provides safe, anonymous online support for young people with emotional wellbeing needs or emerging mental health issues.

The service aims to provide an early response to, and identification of emotional wellbeing and mental health problems, leading to improved well-being, prevention of symptom escalation and provision of the right care at the right time. It is intended for children and young people with emotional wellbeing and/or emerging mental health problems, many of whom will require a low level/targeted/short-term intervention. It also aims to engage with children and young people who may be hard to reach and who may not engage with services through traditional routes.
