Big White Wall
developed by Big White Wall, UK


Allows networking with other people like me / Family / FriendsSupport to deal with symptoms/disabilitiesSelf-monitoringInformation

English

Cost: Free (signup required)

Provides advice helpful to people with anxiety, debt, stress, or work problems.

"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."

I’ve been sent a bunch of positive quotes about the app. But don’t bother with those, as it’s probably better for people to see for themselves what it’s like.” Adult Care blog, Community Care, UK | http://bit.ly/xzgRV6

Diary for recording moods.
"I have bipolar disorder, and this app has been extremely helpful in charting my moods, and the events surrounding them, so that I can better prepare for future events. It is an awesome app. I have recommended it to others, and they are using it, and getting benefit. My therapist is also using it. I print out a copy of my mood history, and my psychiatrist loves it. The app really helps him with managing my medications. Really great app. I have used it for several months, and I never last at anything that long. I don't see any drawbacks or weaknesses with the app." Person with bipolar disorder, USA | PatientView survey, November 2013
