Silvercloud

Silvercloud

Silver Cloud is available to staff and students and is a computer based system that offers helpful programmes to address a range issues including low mood / depression, anxiety, stress and body image/eating worries. The content comprises audio, text and video clips and is intended to be motivational, easy to use, and interactive. There are two ways of using the online programmes; by directly accessing the material and working through it alone or by working through the material with staff to support and guide you.

It is important to be aware that online interventions are not suitable for all people or all situations. You are encouraged to consider alternatives if any of the following apply to you at the moment:

  • If you are feeling suicidal at the moment or having thoughts about hurting or killing yourself, then online work is not the right support for you at this time. If you are a student, please contact theasc@st-andrews.ac.uk or, if out of hours and you consider yourself to be in danger then call the University out of hours service 01334476161 or phone NHS 24 on 111 [Please note from any landline in the University you must dial 1045, this then will connect straight to 111].

If you are a member of staff, please email occhealth@st-andrew.ac.uk or if out of office hours, please phone NHS 24 on 111 [Please note from any landline in the University you must dial 1045, this then will connect straight to 111].

  • If you are experiencing an immediate acute crisis or if you need an immediate response, then online treatment is not suitable for you at this time. Please email theasc@st-andrews.ac.uk and ask for an urgent appointment with a Support Adviser who will assist in finding the right support for you, or contact your GP.

If you are a member of staff, please email occhealth@st-andrews.ac.uk or contact your GP.

This programme is brought to you by Student Services who are committed to the provision of excellent services. If you use the material without support from staff, we will not gather information from your use of this online programme, however, please be aware that we do offer a comprehensive range of services including a guided version of Silvercloud which you can access by emailing theasc@st-andrews.ac.uk
