The Expanding Worlds Podcast

Jan 13, 2020

We all appreciate the importance of good mental health but sometimes lack the toolbox and even the support to consistently achieve it. This is often the case for young people, particularly those with an additional need.  In this episode, we are talking with Kimmy Obongonyinge from Kooth a UK-based organization offering an innovative way of delivering support when and where young people want it.  Kimmy explains what Kooth offers and how it supports young people particularly, at those times where they are not sure who to reach out to. Kimmy also discusses healthy coping strategies that young people can use to manage their mental health and activities that contribute to positive feelings of well-being.  Kooth is an innovative service that takes advantage of the benefits that technology can bring to all of us when used in the right ways. But even with the use of technology, it is all still about people reaching out and supporting each other reminding each other as Kimmy does that we all have good and bad days and we all need to work on our own positive mental health.
