Award-winning mental health and wellbeing support for serving personnel and veterans. Big White Wall.
Award-winning support for serving personnel and veterans
A free support service has been launched for veterans, serving personnel and their families.
Award-winning website www.bigwhitewall.com, is a pioneering online wellbeing service, staffed by professional counsellors, that has already helped many other people. The Department of Health and Ministry of Defence have committed £250,000 to fund a one-year pilot of the Big White Wall specifically for serving personnel, veterans and their families. This is supported by a commitment of £100,000 from Help for Heroes for the first year, with additional funding after this.
And about time too I’d say.
Serving personnel, veterans and their families can access the 24/7 service for free. Amongst other services, Big White Wall users can chat anonymously to others who may have gone through similar experiences, with a team of specially trained counsellors always online to offer support.
