The ultimate aim of this service is to improve the wellbeing of Londoners.
Bringing together different expertise whilst combining data, insights and research, we are finding out exactly where you are talking about wellbeing online, what can help to improve it, and how to get you to the information and tools you need.
The emphasis of this service is on supporting you to improve your daily wellbeing. One of the ways we do this is by providing an intuitive, easy to use online service which will help you find tools and information to help yourself feel better. From the basics of reading tips from other users on getting a better night's sleep, right through to completing a clinically approved self-assessment, we have something to support you no matter who you are or what your circumstances may be.
Finding resources is simple – just browse topics on the homepage to find useful apps, websites and services that could help you feel better. Resources can be sorted by relevance and popularity, and personalised to suit your individual needs.
Another way the Good Thinking service can help is by connecting you with people in a similar situation to you. Sometimes it’s important to find others who understand what you're going through, whatever it may be. That's why we're working on finding ways to connect you with others both online and offline, helping you to build your own support network for whatever might be troubling you.
We can help you find online forums where you can exchange experiences, information and advice on a range of health and wellbeing topics. We can also direct you to local groups near you – just look out for the 'less than a mile away' label for group activities and events in your area. You can also discuss content with other Good Thinking users by rating and commenting on resources on this site.

We know that everyone has different needs, and everyone finds support in their own way. With that in mind, we’ve been using your feedback throughout the design and development of this service to make it as inclusive as possible.
Good Thinking is currently in Beta – this is a live testing phase, and we’re still working to improve the site in a way that meets the needs of all Londoners. We’ll be adding more features as it grows, so check back for updates, and give us some feedback if you have any ideas you’d like to share with us.
The more we learn, the more accurately we can direct you, and others like you, to support where, when and how you need it, without you having to do any of the legwork.
