Coronavirus: Mental Health
The Big White Wall
During these challenging and uncertain times you may find your mental health is suffering. There is help available in the form of the Big White Wall. This is available 24 hours a day 365 days a year.
The Big White Wall is an online community for people who are stressed, anxious or feeling low. It has an active forum with round-the-clock support from trained professionals. You can talk anonymously to other members and take part in group or one to one therapy with therapists. It is for anyone 16 or over who wants to improve their mental health.
How does it work?
The Big White Wall community is completely anonymous so you can express yourself freely and openly. This is done by creating a brick using words, pictures and images and adding it to the community wall.
Take online tests to measure your anxiety or depression levels to set goals and track your progress.
You can register for online courses with health professionals covering a range of issues from sleep problems to anxiety and depression management.
You can also sign up for one to one therapy with experienced counsellors and therapists via webcam, audio or instant messaging.
How do I access it?
You can connect to the service from any computer, tablet or smart phone with internet access.
Simply click here and enter your FY postcode on the Big White Walls sign up page.
This service is free. The service is also free for UK military personal veterans and their families and many universities.
Stay safe and look after your mental health.
