Everyone living in Northamptonshire can now access and use the Feeling Good App. It's a simple mental skills training programme, teaching you how to calm your mind and develop a positive mindset. It enables greater emotional resilience to deal more effectively with the challenges of everyday life

Feeling Good contains a safe, effective, and non-stigmatising programme, Positive Mental Training. This is widely used within the NHS for increasing wellbeing and recovery from stress, anxiety, and depression. It is derived from Olympic sports psychology and takes you through a set of 12 physical and mental exercises.

Dr David Smart, Clinical Director of the General Practice Alliance, a GP Federation that leads in the transformation of equitable healthcare in Northampton uses the App. Dr Smart says:

'No matter what level of support you need, the App provides an excellent way to help manage your stress, anxiety or general feelings of being a bit burnt out. They are just one of the ways that the General Practice Alliance are committed to supporting happy, healthy communities in Northampton, and now, with Feeling Good, right across Northamptonshire. I urge you to give it a try – we all deserve to Feel Good!
