The pandemic has been an extremely challenging period for us all and we recognise that for some people this has had a significant negative affect on mental health and wellbeing. Many patients have found the Grampian Psychological Resilience Hub particularly helpful, and we would also like to let you know about two new resources now available:
Togetherall is aimed at the sixteen plus age group and will help to bridge between youth and adult services with appropriate mental wellbeing support. Trained and accredited professionals are available twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, to support community members and there is a choice of safe therapeutic services including courses, self-assessments and wellbeing resources to improve your mental health. This means anyone who may be struggling can get support at a time that suits them, from a place of their choice. The Togetherall Community is completely anonymous. This service can be accessed by entering your postcode into the "my area is registered" link at the Togetherall website and creating a completely anonymous user account.
Kooth is for the ten to eighteen year old age group. They provide one to one sessions with counsellors and emotional wellbeing practitioners available via drop in or booked appointments which helps to reduce the waiting times for young people seeking help, removing the stigma around mental health. This service can be accessed by young people directly by registering at the Kooth website
