What is Good Thinking?
Good Thinking is an NHS-approved digital mental wellbeing service, accessible 24/7, 365 days a year. The service guides people towards clinically-trusted advice, guidance and resources covering a range of mental health and wellbeing issues, such as stress, anxiety, low mood and sleep concerns. The overall aim is to empower people to feel confident about embracing self-care approaches to improve how they feel everyday.
The Good Thinking website includes useful tools and resources, such as self assessments to help you understand how you’re feeling and what might be triggering your concerns, as well as hints and tips for improving your own mental wellbeing through tools such as regular exercise or meditation.
Good Thinking has also partnered with a number of NHS-approved mobile apps that you can access for free to help you manage your mental wellbeing.
Who is Good Thinking for?
Good Thinking launched in November 2017 with support from London’s NHS, London borough councils and the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities (formerly Public Health England). It’s free and is designed for anyone living or working in London. So far over 500,000 Londoners have accessed the service.
It’s important to point out that Good Thinking does not replace the clinical help, support and treatment available to people who have been diagnosed with a mental health condition or for those with significant concerns about their mental health and wellbeing. If in doubt, always speak to your GP or medical practitioner before using the service.
