GroceryAid launches new support service for young people

Child with smartphone

This week is Children’s Mental Health Week and to mark the occasion GroceryAid has partnered with Kooth, an organisation that specialises in digital mental health for children and young people.

Through Kooth, GroceryAid now offers a mental health and wellbeing platform which can give confidential online counselling and support to children, students and young people aged 11-25. If you work in the grocery industry your children or dependents can access this free service by signing up to Kooth.

Parents and carers are doing such a great job of juggling home schooling, working and parenting, and this service could help you help alleviate some pressures that your children might be feeling. Students away from home or those who have been unable to go back to university may be showing heightened anxiety and Kooth’s self-help tools and forums could help them talk about their feelings.

Kooth gives children and young people easy access to an online community of peers and a team of experienced counsellors. Access is free of the typical barriers to support: no waiting lists, no thresholds, no cost and complete anonymity.
