Information for primary care on Kooth’s mental health services for children and young people


Kooth is a transformational digital mental health platform that gives children and young people, aged 11-19 years, immediate access to an online community of peers and a team of experienced, accredited counsellors.  

Access is free of the typical barriers to support - no waiting times, no referrals, no thresholds to meet and complete anonymity. The service is open for support 365 days per year, between 12pm-10pm on weekdays, and 6pm-10pm on weekends and holidays. Kooth is available for children and young people in north east London via https://www.kooth.com/.  

Kooth have produced a handy guide for GPs with more information on their service as well as an infographic of 10 considerations for GPs talking to young people about mental health. These resources are available in the download section on this page.
