Building on three successful years of supporting those living or working in London, Good Thinking is now available to young people aged 13-18, as part of London’s health and care vision on the theme of improving the emotional wellbeing of children and young Londoners.
The new expanded digital platform has been commissioned by The Mayor’s Office and supported by Partnership for Young Londoners, and will provide young people with access to free, anonymous mental health and wellbeing support.
Good Thinking is part of London’s NHS, providing free, 24/7, digital support to Londoners seeking mental health advice and help. We offer round the clock support and self-care options that are easy to access, and simple to navigate. Through our website, you can download or follow advice and tips to care for your own mental health and wellbeing at a time and place that suits you. We provide a range of tools and apps to help manage sleeplessness, anxiety, stress, low mood, and other feelings. Good Thinking also provides help and guidance if you are concerned about somebody else’s mental wellbeing.
We are part of the NHS and work with health and care partnerships including local councils across the capital, we are supported by the Mayor of London, London Councils, Directors of Public Health and Public Health England. We are working towards Thrive LDN’s vision of helping all Londoners to live happier, healthier lives.
The digital platform has been continuously updated to support people during the COVID-19 outbreak and has a COVID-19 hub that includes tips and support on how to deal with change, uncertainty and how to look after your mental wellbeing and those you care for. It also includes practical tips on dealing with stress and anxiety, boosting your mood, sleeping better and what you can do to help others – including advice for parents and for children and young people.
More Londoners will likely need additional mental health and wellbeing support as a result of the adverse economic and social circumstances exacerbated by the pandemic.
