SilverCloud is an online cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) platform, that offers online wellbeing support to UCL staff and PhD students.

CBT helps you to identify and challenge negative thought and behavioural patterns that impact how you are feeling so that you can make changes for the better.

This evidence-based programme consists of a range of modules and includes interactive tools, activities and videos for you to complete in your own time.
