Welcome to Thinking Ahead

Finding help just got easier…Website graphics

Many people experience problems with how they think and feel at some point in their lives.

Life changing events like losing a job, an accident, the loss of a loved one, a traumatic incident or just moving house can lead to difficult feelings that can be hard to cope with.

Sometimes, there may be no event that has triggered how you are feeling – this is common too.

These experiences can lead to problems with our mental health. Problems such as depression, anxiety, stress, panicking, nervousness, isolation and not being to sleep make it difficult for us to cope with life’s daily demands.

If you live in Heywood, Middleton or Rochdale and are over the age of 16, Thinking Ahead is here to help you take control of your life and feel better.

What is Thinking Ahead?

Thinking Ahead helps with everyday issues that affect your mental wellbeing and provides professional support for more common mental health difficulties, such as anxiety and depression.
