Enagagement for this project finished on 8th March 2021


Digital Mental Health Services

NHS Derby and Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) currently commissions two online mental health and wellbeing services, Kooth and Qwell, and we would like to hear from people who have experience of using either of these services to tell us anonymously how useful they found them and if there are any improvements we can consider when reviewing our digital mental health offer.           

If you’re a younger person with experience using digital mental health services or a parent, carer or guardian of a young person who requires mental health support we want to hear from you.                

What is Kooth?

Kooth is a free online Mental Health and wellbeing resource for children and young people aged 11 to 25 in Derby and Derbyshire. No formal referral is needed; anyone in this age group can become a user by setting up an account on the site. Kooth provides easy to access universal mental health support, including information, blogs and 1 to 1 therapeutic conversations.
