Self-Help Resources

People across Wales can now access free online therapy without going through their GP.

People aged 16 and over experiencing mild to moderate anxiety, depression or stress can sign-up for a 12-week course with SilverCloud online therapy via their smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer. SilverCloud is not an emergency response service.

Who is it for?

SilverCloud online therapy is a free self-help service and is suitable for:

  • People aged 16+ with mild to moderate levels of anxiety, depression or stress AND
  • Who are registered with a GP in Wales or live in Wales AND
  • Who are not receiving secondary or tertiary mental health services (e.g. not under the care of a psychiatrist or psychologist).

When you sign up, you will be asked to complete a set of questionnaires to help us ensure the service is right for you. You may also be asked to participate in a further telephone assessment if we need more information from you. If you fall outside of the eligibility criteria, please contact your GP for help finding the right service for your needs.

How does it work?

You can sign-up for the service online and access anytime, anywhere on your smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer.

Choose one of the easy-to-use, interactive online mental health and wellbeing programmes to complete over 12 weeks. There’s help for anxiety, depression, stress, sleep, money worries and more.

For best results use 15-20 minutes a day, three to four times a week. You’ll receive fortnightly feedback from a qualified SilverCloud Supporter – one of the mental health professionals whose role is to support users of the service – as you work your way through your online programme.

How do I sign up?

You can sign-up for the self-referral service directly, without having to be referred by your GP or other healthcare professional.
