Silvercloud is an online self-help platform for wellbeing and mental health which offers secure access to online CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) programmes.

Silvercloud is self-guided with no need for staff support and is available to all current students who can create a log-in and access topic modules to complete in their own time.

It is easy to use and includes quizzes, videos and other interactive tools and activities. It can be accessed anywhere on any computer, tablet or mobile phone.

We are currently piloting one programme on Silvercloud. With a focus on resilience, this programme for stress management helps you to identify and enhance existing strengths and skills, and build new ones. This is a pro-active and practical programme built in conjunction with leading clinical and subject matter experts that provides you with the tools and techniques to manage stress and bring balance into your life. Topics you will learn about include:

  • assertiveness
  • problem solving
  • self-esteem
  • communication
  • stress management

'Space from Stress' consists of eight modules, you can complete these in your own time and at your own pace over approximately eight weeks. Each module contains text, video and audio clips as well as interactive and engaging activities that will help you to manage stress and build resilience.

This is an unsupported module on Silvercloud which means that no one will be monitoring any response you may give. If you would like to discuss using it with an adviser or need further help please contact Student Services.

If you require immediate or urgent help please contact your local GP or your community support services, you can find these details on the Find Help page.

At the moment we also have another programme Space from COVID-19 has been produced specifically to help you with worries and emotions around the challenging situation with the coronavirus.

Join our study

We are currently conducting a study using Silvercloud to find out how an online programme might be able to support students to develop skills in order to cope with stressful times such as periods of exams and coursework.

You would need to fill in some questionnaires and register to use SilverCloud for eight weeks. After this time you will be asked to complete the questionnaires again.
