ShinyMind App

The ShinyMind App

The ShinyMind App rolls out the impact of our successful Resilience programme, added to other tailored resources for NHS staff, and also creates an interactive community to improve wellbeing and resilience for every member of staff. It can engage with and connect all staff within a Trust, proactively supporting their wellbeing 24/7, for 365 days a year.

The App has been co-designed with all levels of NHS staff groups who have attended the Resilience programme, including various specific staff groups including nursing and medical staff. This has enabled the creation of a wellbeing and resilience resource designed for everyone working in the NHS.

The co-production process has been undertaken alongside staff at The Walton Centre NHS Foundation Trust, which has also allowed the cultural DNA of a high performing organisation - Gold Investors in People and CQC Outstanding - to be distilled and incorporated into the App itself.

‘You said, we did’

All features have been co-designed by NHS staff for NHS staff, as we asked various staff groups at all levels what they would like to see on the ShinyMind APP:
