I hope that you are all well,
Please if possible could you share the below information through service websites/social media channels/ online forums/ newsletters to ensure that young people and families are aware of Kooth support at this time across North Tyneside:
Kooth Support Statement: Covid-19
As schools and services across the country begin to contingency plan in the event of the current closures, I wished to make contact to highlight the support Kooth.com is able to provide at this difficult time.
Kooth will continue to provide online mental health and wellbeing support to young people aged 11- 25 years in North Tyneside via any internet accessible device. Kooth provides an opportunity to interact in a supportive way with other young people as well as receive support from a qualified counsellor.
We would like to ensure that young people are signposted to a safe environment where information, advice and guidance is accessible through age appropriate, pre-moderated articles, forums in an aim to reduce some of those anxieties surrounding Covid-19.
Young people can also chat in confidence with qualified counsellors, who are online from 12-noon until 10pm on weekdays and from 6pm until 10pm, 365 days a year.
Kooth may need to be accessed whilst young people are at home, therefore if you are able to share information on service websites/ social media platforms this would be greatly appreciated.
-Kooth Supporting Letter including the ‘Online Statement’ on page 2 which includes the Kooth video link to` share.
Thank you for raising an awareness of Kooth at this time and I look forward to hearing from you.
Take care and speak soon.
