How does SilverCloud work?

Designed to be practical and help you to gain insight and learn how to make things better. For example, by identifying how certain thoughts, feelings and behaviours can make things worse or maintain the problem.

Each course is divided into sections  and include videos, questionn‌aires, reading up on a topic or making a record of your thoughts.  

As you work through the course your assigned supporter from the Counselling, Mental Health and Wellbeing team will check your progress online and give feedback. This may be week to week, or whatever time period you agree. The courses require you to be self-motivated and something of an independent learner, although your supporter will also try to motivate you.

How can I access SilverCloud?

SilverCloud isn't appropriate for every student and you will need to see someone in the team first to assess your suitability and be provided with a login. Contact us to book an initial assessment.
