More detail about SilverCloud here……..

SilverCloud is a completely confidential internet-based system or platform developed by SilverCloud Health that delivers online therapeutic and psycho-education programs. A variety of programs aim to offer information and support for people experiencing problems related to mental health.  The programmes consist of six to seven modules which can be completed at a time and pace most convenient to the user. Each module contains text, video and audio clips as well as interactive and engaging activities, applications and quizzes that can be completed as the user moves through the module.

SilverCloud is your space for thinking and feeling better.  Most of us face challenges in our lives. From stresses caused by a particular situation at work or home, to deeper and more lasting feelings of anxiety or depression. No one teaches us how to handle these situations and so we’re left to think that there’s something wrong with us, that we’re ill.  It does not have to be this way.

With the right insight, advice and actions, most people can take an active role in thinking and feeling better. And they deliver programmes that build on this belief.  SilverCloud is clinically validated and is the result of over 17 years of clinical research and studies have shown that it works.
