This year you told us that student mental health should be our priority and we listened, lobbying the university to improve the mental health support services on offer and to ensure all students could access the support they need.
And it worked!
We are delighted that from Monday 14th January, UWTSD students can access free 24/7 online support with Big White Wall.
Whether you’re struggling to sleep, feeling low, stressed or not coping, Big White Wall can help you get support, take control and feel better.
The service provides online peer and professional support, with trained counsellors. Big White Wall provides a safe space online to get things off your chest, explore your feelings and learn how to improve and self-manage your mental health and wellbeing.
Big White Wall is totally anonymous, so no one will know you’ve chosen to use it unless you tell them!
93% of members feel better as a result of using the service and nearly 90% use Big White Wall outside of 9-5pm. You can get support on the service at any time of the day or night, 7 days a week, 365 days a year!
To join Big White Wall’s supportive online community, simply go to bigwhitewall.com and sign up with your university email address. You then choose an anonymous username for your time on the wall.
This is a new service made available to UWTSD, in addition to the mental health services already provided by the University.
