Young people

Feeling anxious? Stressed out? Not sleeping properly? As you grow up, you experience physical changes and various pressures, such as exams and bullying, that can have an impact on your mental health. On top of that, you might be struggling with how COVID-19 has changed your life.

Good Thinking is here to help boost your mental wellbeing. Working closely with organisations like Partnership for Young London, we invite young people to guide and review our content – so you can be sure we’ll help with the issues that really matter to you.
