Last week on World Mental Health Day the University launched Big White Wall – a free, 24/7 online mental health resource available to all students, researchers and staff.
Big White Wall offers a round-the-clock space for students to express how they are feeling, complete guided courses and seek support in an environment that is monitored by clinical professionals. At any time, any day you can access online mental health support. Whether you’re feeling low or anxious, finding it difficult to sleep, or just need a space to get something off your chest, Big White Wall can help you explore your feelings.
It also includes self-guided courses, personal assessments and peer to peer support for those who suffer with low moods, anxiety and other mental health conditions – and also for those interested in exploring resources to support their wellbeing. It is monitored 24/7 by trained counsellors and complements our existing University support services.
It’s completely confidential and anonymous, so no one will know you are using it unless you tell them.
