The Big White Wall is an innovative on-line mental health service, which aims to support people aged 16 plus who are feeling under stress and strain to feel better.
The Big White Wall is a safe online community of people who are anxious, down or not coping who support and help each other by sharing what’s troubling them, guided by trained professionals.
Community members can: post discussions and gain advice and support from others; take tests to find out more about how they are feeling; set goals and find ways to cope better; read effective self-help information; join groups for common mental health issues such as low mood, anxiety and worry; and access the service from their smart phones and tablets.
Available 24/7, Big White Wall is completely anonymous so individuals can express themselves freely and openly. Professionally trained 'Wall Guides' ensure the safety and anonymity of all members, led by a senior clinical team involving Consultant Psychiatrists.
An independent review of Big White Wall found that: 73% of people using the site shared an issue for the first time; 80% of people were able to manage how they were feeling without needing to access other help and support; and 95% reported improved wellbeing.
Big White Wall was one of only two app based psychological interventions to receive positive ratings in a review published in the October 2015 edition of the journal 'Evidence Based Mental Health', both in terms of the evidence to substantiate performance claims, and in terms of the use of NHS accredited performance metrics.
