Qwell (www.qwell.io) is a free, safe and an anonymous mental health and wellbeing online service. There are no waiting lists, no referrals and no thresholds required to access the service which is accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and delivered by Kooth plc, the UK’s largest digital mental health provider.
Qwell is available to all adults aged 26+ in the St Helens area (commissioned by St Helens Clinical Commissioning Group).
The service encourages peer to peer support via moderated discussion forums and self-help through reading or submitting content. Qwell also gives people the opportunity to access online counselling from qualified counsellors who are available from midday to 10pm every week day and from 6pm to 10pm at weekends. People can drop in for one-to-one instant text-based chats or book a session in advance.
