CoLCSU is promoting Kooth.com, a free, online counselling and emotional wellbeing platform for young people in Liverpool* aged 14 to 25. The Kooth website allows young people to gain anonymous access to advice, support and guidance on any issue that is affecting their wellbeing. From friendship or relationship issues, family disagreements or difficult home lives, to concerns around eating, anxiety, stress, depression, self harm, suicidal thoughts etc. Our qualified counsellors are here to give young people the support they need, when they need it. Kooth.com’s live chat service is available from Monday to Friday 12 noon - 10pm, Saturdays and Sundays 6pm - 10pm and is accessible through mobile, tablet and desktop, completely free of charge.
As well as being able to talk to our counsellors, at Kooth.com you can also connect with other young people in monitored forums or get self-help through our online magazine. The large variety of forum categories allows young people to anonymously share their issues and receive positive messages of advice and support from young people across the country. As our forum posts are all checked before they go live on the site we can guarantee every young person a safe and helpful experience. For more information or to access Kooth, just go to Kooth.com
