How Kooth provides support

Once registered, users can connect with an online community of peers and read pre-moderated magazine articles on a range of mental health and well being subjects. They can also access an interactive hub for daily well being challenges, write a personal online journal and engage with a British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) accredited counsellor through chat messaging.
