New Online Mental Health Support Launched Across Devon

New Online Mental Health Support Launched Across Devon

A new free and confidential mental health and wellbeing service for adults is now available across Devon, Plymouth and Torbay.

It’s being delivered by mental health provider, Kooth, and it will ensure that every adult in Devon has access to a choice of online support to manage their own emotional health and wellbeing.

It’s called ‘Qwell’, and it offers a safe online space for people to access therapeutic activities and content including a peer support community. It includes self-help articles, forums, and discussion boards that are moderated by qualified practitioners.

It also allows users to keep an online journal and monitor their wellbeing through an interactive goal tracker, accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

And there’s a one-on-one live chat and messaging counselling service with a team of qualified practitioners.

Anyone in Devon over the age of 18 can access Qwell without a referral from a health professional. There’s no criteria to qualify for support.

Kooth already deliver emotional wellbeing and mental health support to children and young adults aged 11 to 18 across Devon.

Both services are confidential and designed to work as part of wider mental health services across Devon.
