Bright Sparks, a website produced by BBC Global News Ltd, a commercial company owned by the BBC has praised Big White Wall, a free online mental health support tool, available to patients in South Cheshire and Vale Royal, in an article about good uses of social media.
The article stated, “One website that has been praised by leading psychologists is Big White Wall, which is available in Canada, New Zealand and the UK. Inspired by the early days of social networking, it’s a peer support community and now has partnerships with the NHS in keeping with best practice and the latest evidence.
They also personalise suggestions to you of how to help you feel better based on your interests. The Big White Wall gave me the testimony of one case study, who said: “I found it almost impossible to discuss with my parents and I was a bit frightened of disclosing it to my friends. Being able to talk online to other people about that was really, really useful. Otherwise, I would have kept it all bottled up.”
People, aged 16 +, living in South Cheshire and Vale Royal, who are going through a tough time or struggling with mental health issues and require some much needed support, can access a free online mental health support tool.
Big White Wall is a safe, anonymous online community of people who can help each other as well as having the benefit of trained professionals who ensure the safety and anonymity of all members. It also hosts a range of wellbeing tools to help with self-management.
70% of members reported feeling better as a result of joining Big White Wall, and 46% shared something for the first time with the community.
