If you’re struggling and in need of support, Big White Wall, an online mental health and wellbeing resource, is available to anyone in the armed forces community aged 16+.
Once registered, you’ll have 24/7 access to a community of members who help each other through challenging periods. In addition, you can contact one of the ‘wall guides’, who are trained clinicians. You can take self-guided courses, tests, and read through information about what you’re experiencing or use art therapy to creatively express how you’re feeling. The service is anonymous.
Both the community and clinical team are experienced in supporting a wide range of topics including stress, anxiety, depression, relationship problems, bereavement, PTSD and loneliness.
To join the BWW community for free, register at bigwhitewall.com and select the armed forces option.
