Kooth is an anonymous online mental wellbeing platform available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week provided by Gloucestershire County Council for young people aged 11 to 18 living in Gloucestershire experiencing issues with their emotional wellbeing, such as anxiety, low mood or stress.

Free counselling can be accessed through a drop-in service or booked sessions; there is no referral needed from a health professional, no waiting lists, and no criteria to meet to get support.

There is also an online support network where young people can join friendly discussion boards to connect with others having similar experiences.

They can access journals, goal trackers, and self-help articles with the option to contribute their own experiences or advice.
