Supporting young people’s emotional wellbeing and mental health
The Kooth service is a key part of Swindon’s drive to improve accessibility, promote resilience and better support young people’s emotional wellbeing and mental health.
Kooth is for young people aged 11-19 living in the Swindon area. It offers online counselling and also peer to peer support through forum meetings and information and advice in the form of articles and blogs by young people.
