Kooth Support for Young People - awareness sessions

We would like to draw our Parents/Carers attention to Kooth, a service designed to support the wellbeing and resilience of young people.  It is available in Sheffield for children and young people aged 11-18 (up to 25 if in care or coming out of care).

Kooth is running two free online parent/carer awareness sessions in June 2021.  The sessions are designed to help you understand how Kooth can support your child with their mental health and wellbeing.  Each session will cover:


  • A Presentation on Kooth
  • A Live tour of the Kooth site
  • An opportunity for Questions & Answers about Kooth


Please use the link below to sign up to one of the events.
