Summary

Big White Wall provides safe, anonymous support 24/7 to anyone struggling with a range of common mental health issues, or who feels burdened by everyday worries and concerns. Members can share experiences, express themselves in images by making a ‘brick’ in the wall, and access a range of guided group support courses on topics including managing anxiety and depression, positive thinking and problem solving. There is also a range of self-administered clinical tests, guides and tips to improve wellbeing, including articles on self-esteem, sleep, relationships and many more. Trained counsellors (called Wall Guides) are online at all times to moderate the service and provide additional support. According to BWW 95% of members feel better after using Big White Wall, and 73% share an issue for the first time.  Big White Wall is available 24/7 on the website, and via tablet and smartphone app. After creating an account at www.bigwhitewall.com, you will be able to download the app. Click here to download for Apple/iOS or for Android. Whatever you are struggling with, Big White Wall hopes to help.Click here to watch a short film about how Big White Wall works.

Reviews

Reviewer: TheSite.org (Youth Support Charity), UK
Review: "I have used Big White Wall (BWW) in the past, having been given a code from the UK university I attend. This entitled me to three months' free membership. Alternatively, BWW is free from some of the UK's NHS Trusts, as well as being free for serving UK armed forces' personnel, veterans and their families. Membership for people who don’t fall into those categories is £24. One of the best aspects was the wall itself - this allows you to express yourself visually when sometimes there aren’t the words to express how you’re feeling. Self-administered clinical tests, guides, tips and articles to improve wellbeing are also available, along with feedback suggesting next steps in self care and management of how you feel."
