Children and Young People's mental health

 

The first of the new services in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland is already up and running and has been well-received.

Kooth is an online counselling service which is free to use for young people aged 11 to 19, and up to age 24 for those with a learning disability.

Between April and June 2017, 462 local young people accessed Kooth, with nine out of ten saying they would recommend the service to their friends.

Kooth offers self-help tools including a live forum, peer support groups and an online journal facility, which provides a space for day to day reflection on events and feelings. Young people can also access messaging and live, one-to-one chat with trained counsellors. Patients can self-refer to the service, by registering online with basic details, including the area they live in.
