Improve your mental health and wellbeing with SilverCloud

Edinburgh College has partnered with leading healthcare provider SilverCloud to give students access to a wide-range of online emotional support programmes designed to help improve your mental health and wellbeing.

Students across the College will now be able to access a number of online programmes from their computer, mobile phone or tablet to help relieve stress, anxiety or depression.

SilverCloud offers secure, immediate access to online CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) programmes, tailored to the specific needs of each individual. The service is very easy to use with interactive tools and activities to make the experience interesting and motivational.

Programmes are designed to help with a range of issues from social anxiety and panic attacks, to everyday issues such as lack of sleep or stress.

Students will also be able to take an online quiz that will give them feedback on the areas of mental health and wellbeing they have trouble with, and provide a programme of support to help improve these areas.

Edinburgh College student wellbeing advisor Jenni Moreland said: “By partnering with SilverCloud, our students will now have access to a number of comprehensive wellbeing programmes expertly designed to enhance support for issues with stress, anxiety or depression.”

To use the service, all you need to do is register and create a password using your Edinburgh College email address.
