ShinyMind - interactive wellbeing and resilience resource.

By Jonathan Howard, Shiny Mind Added 18th Mar, 2021 Updated 7th Apr, 2021

ShinyMind is a uniquely interactive mindset resource co-created with the Walton Centre NHS FT, which improves wellbeing, resilience and teamwork, delivered via a mobile application and wellbeing campaign. Independent research shows it to reduces everyday stress and anxiety, leaving people feeling happier and more productive. Its foundation is a blend of science and research carried out by our leadership psychotherapists into what makes your people feel better, their teams work better and ultimately sees organisations perform better. Already used by thousands of NHS staff across the country, ShinyMind has unique community messaging functions creating connection and support within teams and organisations.



We worked with people in some of the most stressful jobs – in the NHS – to understand what they need to feel and perform at their best. Together we built a mindset methodology to help people think more positively, feel more motivated -  and wrapped it all up in ShinyMind, the support they need when they want it.

Not just mental health, more than meditation and beyond helping you sleep – although that's covered too, it’s grounded in evidence, science and research, equipping your people to thrive by changing the way they think. It helps build teamwork, morale and mutual support with its positive messaging and community functions, as well as being a confidential, safe space.

ShinyMind can also be personalised with photos, journaling, gratitude and resilience resources, even music playlists, and so builds as a user's personal space - "a coach in your pocket" as one NHS user described it, which is perhaps why after 30 days 48.6% of ShinyMind users are still active, compared to just 8% of leading wellbeing apps.
