In recent years, there has been growing interest from the government in exploring the potential of new
technology to increase access to mental health services for children and young people.
This Education Policy Institute report, prepared for mental health service provider XenZone, reviews the current literature on online counselling. Through an analysis of local data it also assesses how young people respond to the Kooth model, an online counselling and emotional wellbeing platform, before setting out recommendations for further research.
