Feeling Good App

We are excited to be sharing a fantastic digital solution for improving mental health and wellbeing that our PCN has been selected to be trialling.

The app is audio, simple and effective for depression, anxiety and sleep

The Feeling Good App contains the evidence-based audio programme Feeling Good for Life, which is the new name for Positive Mental Training, a series of 12 audio tracks to help you build essential skills, not only to deal with mental stresses and strains, but to bounce forwards and become mentally stronger and more resilient.  There are other modules on the app, all contain the same beginning tracks from Feeling Good for Life.

 This programme can help relax & calm your mind and body, lift your mood, help you feel more positive, let go of worries, sleep better and deal with stresses more easily. It can also help with physical symptoms of stress, such as headaches, irritable bowel, fatigue, and chronic pain. It can improve your ability to focus on a task, to feel positive about yourself when talking to others, to perform at your best when you need to.
