Researchers at The University of Manchester have worked with Kooth, an online mental health service for young people, to produce a report on digital mental health support for children and young people.
Launched in 2004, Kooth provides counselling, advice, and support to young people (aged 11-18) struggling with their mental health. It is run by XenZone, an innovator in digital mental health.
The report is a characterisation of the person-centred, holistic work carried out by Kooth on a daily basis. In defining the “Theory of Change” for Kooth , researchers have identified the characteristics and mechanisms of the service that lead to better mental health and wellbeing.
