Place2Be Links


The people at Place2Be have shared these links for children and young people aged 10-18 . The links are three partners they are working with, with each service being offered free of charge.


  1. ThinkNinja: this is an app-based service, which can be downloaded. The app is guided by a ‘WiseNinja’, which is an automated virtual assistant, built on artificial intelligence and replicating a clinical psychologist. The app provides psychoeducation on mental health and emotional wellbeing along with coaching tips for staying well and handling stress. More information can be found on their website.
  2. Kooth: is an online service which offers online counselling and wellbeing support. Young people aged 10-18 years can sign up to this service online, selecting Place2Be from the drop down menu. The service offers a range of therapeutic tools and activities and is opened 365 days a year (currently from 12-10pm weekdays and 6-10pm at weekends, though this is currently being reviewed). This is an anonymous service, everything is pre-moderated and confidential. All the counsellors are trained, qualified and experienced working with young people. Further information can be found on their website.
  3. Shout: we have partnered with Shout, a free 24-hour crisis text service for over 18 months. This service is primarily aimed for students aged 10 years plus and is delivered by a team of crisis volunteers. Place2Be schools and their students can text P2B to 85258 24 hours a day. Additional information is available on their website.
