“What's amazing for me is that once people have learned these Mindfulness techniques, they keep using them. Receiving so many stories of participants’ lived experience is also really important. It's not just about statistical measurements, it's actually making a significant difference to someone’s life.”
"I call it a gold standard. We frequently quote the user feedback because the reviews we receive are profoundly moving. Some people achieve a recovery using Be Mindful that would be almost difficult for any clinical service to achieve."
Good Thinking is a free-to-use online mental wellbeing service that promotes proactive self-care of mental health conditions to residents and workers of London. It has helped over half a million people tackle stress, anxiety, low mood, sleep problems, and other concerns.
Launched in 2017, Good Thinking is jointly funded by the London Councils and London CCGs, and is supported by the Mayor of London, Public Health England and NHS England, and delivered by Healthy London Partnership.
A key aim was to offer effective support for common mental disorders, especially for people that may have difficulty engaging with a traditional NHS service. Good Thinking sought to maximise the opportunity afforded by smartphones and tablets, as users increasingly used apps to support their mental health, while reducing hours spent attending sessions and travelling to scheduled appointments.
Reviewing many of the best and most popular mental health apps available, Be Mindful was identified as one of the leading, most established digital therapeutic products in the mental health space. Already used by NHS IAPT services across the country, Good Thinking recognised a wealth of evidence that pointed to Be Mindful being an effective choice.
The programme was easily integrated into the Good Thinking suite of offerings, with Be Mindful’s Management Portal providing verified clinical outcome data and course analytics with full participant confidentiality, including user numbers, progress, and the mental health outcomes achieved on completion.
Be Mindful delivers a high-quality programme to thousands of Londoners, with outstanding participant feedback reinforcing the significant, positive outcomes it generates for course completers.
