With the mental health of young people a top priority at Bridgnorth Endowed, a leading digital mental wellbeing service was invited to hold an event in school on Wednesday.

Jennifer Shergill from Kooth West Midlands ran a lunchtime drop-in session to promote the platform to students and explain how Kooth can help to support their mental health and wellbeing.

The session offered students the chance to ask questions, pick up a card, and learn more about the service and how to sign up.

Kooth is a free, safe and anonymous place for 11 to 24-year-olds to find online support and counselling through a range of helpful features and tools.

By signing up, young people can get access to articles and personal stories, discussion boards, one-to-one chats with counsellors, tools to track how they’re feeling, and much more.

Mrs Tristham, who heads up the pastoral programme at BES, said: “Since the pandemic, schools across the nation are seeing an increase in students struggling with mental health issues so it’s essential that we signpost the very best support that’s out there.”

“Kooth offers a fantastic service to young people and it was hugely beneficial for our students to be able to chat to a member of the team during this week’s event.”
