Free online counselling for Wiltshire secondary pupils

Thursday 30th June 2016

As part of Wiltshire’s transformation plan for children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing (2015-2020) the council has commissioned Kooth to provide online counselling for pupils at all Wiltshire secondary schools.  This service is funded by the Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group. 

Young people have told us that they need access to high quality support and treatment, which is simple and easy to access.  This service is designed to increase and enhance existing school provision, providing more flexible access to support.  The service uses a medium with which young people feel familiar, find easy to use and has already been successfully trialled in Wiltshire.  

Today Wiltshire secondary schools have been sent further information about Kooth, including a poster and PowerPoint to help promote the service to students.
