SilverCloud

Feeling anxious, depressed or overwhelmed?

SilverCloud is an online mental health tool available to all faculty, staff, and students at no cost. It offers self-guided programs for anxiety, depression, stress, resilience, or insomnia. Based on cognitive behavioral therapy principles, the self-guided program is available any time, on any device. Aimed at helping to address mild to moderate issues, SilverCloud allows individuals to manage day-to-day stressors personally and anonymously.

What is SilverCloud?

SilverCloud is not designed to replace in-person mental health treatment for many complex concerns but may be an effective option for students with mild to moderate symptoms to:

  • Help manage day-to-day stresses and anxiety
  • Improve resilience
  • Learn skills to understand thoughts, feelings, and behaviors
  • Reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety
  • Hear stories of other college students 

SilverCloud includes:

  • Interactive learning modules
  • Informational quizzes
  • Facts and quizzes about mental health
  • Secure online journaling
  • Tools such as mood monitoring, mindfulness, and a Worry Tool to build skills for managing mood

Most SilverCloud modules are interactive and consist of seven parts:

  1. Introduction: This introductory video helps clients decide if the module they selected is a good fit. After the first module, they’ll set expectations about what’s coming up. 
  2. Quizzes: These help gauge clients’ knowledge and deliver new information.  
  3. Main Content: These pages display the most important information and activities about the topic.
  4. Personal Stories: Personal stories based on real-life people, clinical knowledge, and experiences.
  5. Tools: Activities to help reinforce the information clients learned throughout the module.
  6. “Staying in the Present”: Many of the module topics discuss living in the past or thinking about the future. This activity uses the principles of mindfulness to help bring the user back to the present moment.
  7. Review: Clients are encouraged to reflect, set goals, and transition the information and skills they learned in the module to their day-to-day life.

All videos throughout the modules include closed captioning and complete transcripts.
