Chatting to a counsellor in Cornwall is now as easy as sending a message on Facebook.

A new online service is being offered to struggling Duchy youngsters.

It lets them "talk" to experts about everything from family problems to bulllying and relationships on the internet.

Bosses at KOOTH, which runs the service, say hundreds of young people have signed up since the start of March.

Spokesperson Aaron Sefi said, "I think we've had over two hundred people subscribe to the service. Inevitably online, it's some of the more shamed issues. It might be someone who's feeling very low and thinking about harming themselves.

"I think it offers them a lot more freedom to talk when they feel ready to. It's also, maybe they bring issues sometime they don't feel ready to talk to someone face to face about or in person, because they can sign up anonymously at first.

11 to 25 year olds can register for the service here.

Information on Cornwall's face-to-face counselling service can be found by calling the SHARE freephone line on 0800 181033 or the Family Information Service on 0800 5878191 or try their website here.
