Mental Health


Big White Wall

All students at UWTSD have access to Big White Wall; a mental health community and service that provides online peer and professional support, with trained counsellors free-of-charge. 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. 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. It 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 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.
