At Solent Mind we are excited to announce that we have launched a completely free new wellbeing app. This new complimentary wellbeing tool is designed to support you on your mental health journey and to make it easier for everyone to look after their emotional wellbeing.
Keeping on top of your mental health is something everyone can benefit from. This app supports users to take positive steps in their lives and to take control of their emotional wellbeing in fun and engaging ways, such as guided breathing activities and an interactive mood tracker. It is a tool to be used alongside other therapies or to compliment ongoing support, allowing users to strengthen their mental wellbeing.
This comprehensive new app is packed full of tips and advice for living well, from guided mindfulness exercises and healthy recipes to employment advice and interactive resources. Form good habits with weekly wellbeing challenges, read positive news stories and enjoy personalised activities.
Created by experienced mental health professionals and using proven wellbeing techniques and therapies, app users benefit from practical guidance on keeping on top of their mental health.
Solent Mind Chief Executive, Kevin Gardner says, “In the midst of a pandemic and with technology playing such a big part in our lives, there has never been a more vital time to offer the extra mental health and wellbeing support that can now be found in our new app, alongside our current services.”
Designed as wellbeing support in your pocket. Our trusted network of wellbeing centres, talking therapies and specialist recovery-focused services offered across the Solent region has given us the in-depth knowledge and expertise to identify the need for digital and instantly accessible support for users. It is also this experience that has driven the content of this app. The support and expertise of non-profit Mental Health Awareness organisations; We are Hummingbird and Happy Days for Everyone, has also been vital in the creation of this app.
Ron Shields, Chief Executive of Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust says, “The new wellbeing app is an easily accessible way of getting the extra support we need in maintaining our mental wellbeing, particularly in such difficult times.”
We're running a survey on behalf of Solent NHS Trust, to find out what you think about accessing mental health outpatient appointments using online web chat in Portsmouth.
