How the SilverCloud® programmes work for patients

After your clinician refers you, you'll receive an invite with a login to access the platform free of charge. Then, after you've signed up, you'll be assigned a supporter who will check in with you weekly. They'll help you set goals and apply the SilverCloud® support to your life. 

The programme uses clinically proven digital Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, with the full course supported for 8 weeks, and self-guided thereafter. The platform is easy to use, confidential, and can be accessed anywhere 24/7 via a smartphone, tablet, or computer, meaning you can get the help you need when you need it.

Each module comes with its own tools and coping mechanisms, tailored to your individual mental health needs and goals. Using the SilverCloud® platform for just 15 minutes a day, or 3-4 times per week is proven to help you cope with whatever you may be going through. 

If you think the SilverCloud® digital mental health tools can help you, ask your GP or appropriate mental health practitioner for a referral.

How the SilverCloud® platform works for a referrer

If you are a GP or work in Primary Care Psychology, Counselling in Primary Care, Community Mental Health or Jigsaw you can make patient and client referrals to the SilverCloud® service via email:

  • Using your Healthmail email, send the name and email address of the client or patient you wish to refer, along with any other important details to SilverCloud@healthmail.ie. 
  • The SilverCloud® Admin will then contact your client or patient and invite them to the service with their own personal login. This grants them access to the platform and can be done on any device. 
  • After logging in, they will be assigned a clinical supporter, who will contact them weekly, guiding them through their journey. This will solely be on the platform to help keep them on track. 
  • The platform is not appropriate for anyone experiencing severe mental health symptoms, e.g. psychosis, or if they have expressed wishes and/or plans to end their life or harm others.
