SilverCloud - Free online mental health therapy
People across Wales can now access free online therapy without needing to go through their GP.
What is SilverCloud?
SilverCloud is an online space which offers a different range of programmes based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to empower you to develop skills to manage your psychological wellbeing with more confidence, from the convenience of your own location and in your own time.
The programme is easily accessible and is compatible with any computer, tablet, iPad or smartphone, making it flexible for service users to use at locations they feel comfortable in, in their own time. There is also an app that can be downloaded on to any smart device.
Self-referral into the service
We are delighted to launch our new self-referral function to our online CBT service, SilverCloud.
If you live in Wales or you are registered with a Welsh GP, are aged 16 years or above, and want access to an effective online CBT therapy without having to first have an appointment with your local GP or other health professional and think SilverCloud is suitable for you.

You will be asked to select one programme which would be most beneficial to you.
The five available programmes are:
- Space from Depression and Anxiety
- Space from Depression
- Space from Anxiety
- Space from Stress
- Space from Covid-19
Upon successful completion of the self-assessment, you will be granted secure, immediate access to the online supported CBT programme. If your self-assessment results are not within the appropriate threshold for this service, a clinician from the team will be in contact with you in due course for a follow up phone call, as this service may not be the most beneficial for you.
The eight additional topic-specific modules, listed above, can be accessed by messaging the Online CBT Coordinator through the platform and requesting that these be unlocked.
Blended online CBT Service
If you, or someone you know, is aged 16 years or above and is interested in accessing Online CBT but feel that that receiving face to face reviews with a Blended Online CBT Practitioner, instead of remotely with the Online CBT Coordinator, would be more beneficial, then the blended function may be more appropriate for you. If you want more information on this service, please visit your GP.
