Kooth is operating as usual however due to Covid-19 the site maybe experiencing an increase in traffic to the site and so young people may need to wait longer for chat and messaging responses. Commissioners are working with Kooth at this time to increase the capacity of the site with an aim to managing the increased demand for support.
If a young person reports experiencing severe delays or problems on the site please feedback to Aimee.Gibson@trafford.gov.uk
About our service
Kooth is an online counselling, advice and mental health support service for young people in Trafford aged 11-25. As we are commissioned by Trafford council it is free for young people to use and is self-referral, meaning there is no need to visit a GP to access the service. Completely anonymous, it takes just a few minutes to sign up to the site where young people can then speak to fully qualified counsellors and therapists until 10pm, 365 days per year. There are also forums where young people can get peer based advice; these are all fully moderated by Kooth staff to ensure a safe and supportive environment. All counsellors are BACP accredited and police checked, and will continue to support young people for the duration they need. Kooth is also available in Manchester, Warrington and Cheshire East.
