Hello everyone, welcome to your March 2022 Kooth & Qwell Newsletter!

We provide free Kooth & Qwell training/information sessions in both digital and face to face settings as well as free promotional material (cards/posters/flyers). For example:

Parents & Carers

We love talking to parent carers as we know Kooth can be a fantastic source of support for their children or someone they care and Qwell to support with their own wellbeing. We would love to hear from any organisations or services who work with a group of parents and/or carers that would benefit from finding out more about Kooth.com and Qwell.io. You can also help us by sharing information about Kooth and Qwell in newsletters or on social media.

Primary School Transition Sessions (Year 6)

We know that the big move to secondary school is an anxious time for year 6 so to help them prepare our team have a fantastic free awareness session designed to help them explore their feelings and think about ways to help them feel calm, in the lead up to and during those first few weeks of year 7.

Early bookings are now open. These face-to-face sessions are subject to limited availability however all schools will still be offered an opportunity to join a virtual awareness event as an alternative nearer the time. To find out more and to book your free place please email Jemma Austinl jaustin@kooth.com - County Durham or Andrew Poinen apoinen@kooth.com - Darlington and Tees Valley.

University ‘What’s On Your Mind’ Campaign

 

The 3rd March 2022 is ‘University Mental Health Day’. This year we’re relaunching our ‘What’s on Your Mind’ campaign designed for university students providing them with an easy-to-use tool which helps them check which support is available for them at Kooth Digital Health.

 

We offer support either through Kooth.com or Qwell.io depending on their age. With this being so varied from area to area we want to make it easier for students to check for support as well as for universities who would like to promote our support within communications. You can use this campaign on the day and beyond by taking advantage of our professionally designed assets and resources here.

Support packs for education staff, workplaces and students

 

In case you missed it last month, our fantastic team at Kooth Digital Health have produced brand new guides providing education staff, workplaces and students with the information, tips and resources they need in the event of a significant incident which may then have an impact on young people’s mental health but also those involved in the incident.
