SilverCloud is an online course to help people manage stress, anxiety and depression. You work through a series of topics selected by a therapist to address specific needs. The eight-week course is designed to be completed in your own time and at your own pace.
Who is it suitable for?
SilverCloud is for people aged 16 or over who need help with mental health issues and the emotional challenges associated with long-term conditions.
How does it work?
SilverCloud uses cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to help you change the way you think and feel about things.
Once registered, you work through a series of topics chosen by your therapist at your own pace, where and when it suits you.
The therapist will check in with you about once every two weeks during the course to review your progress.
The course features videos, activities, quizzes, audio guides and your own online journal.
You have full access to SilverCloud for one year after activating your account.
How do I access it?
SilverCloud is only available via an NHS referral, or some non-NHS organisations, such as universities.
Contact your local mental health services to see if SilverCloud is available as a free NHS treatment.
You can access SilverCloud from any computer, tablet or smartphone with internet access.
