Big White Wall - Armed Forces Support Network

New Big White Wall app – free for UK Armed Forces

Big White Wall is an online community support network for people experiencing emotional distress, free to all UK serving personnel, veterans and family members.  It provides a safe, anonymous space 24/7 to express how you are feeling and share with others experiencing similar issues.  There is a range of self-care resources including practical coping strategies and guided self-help courses to help improve your mental wellbeing. 

Tablet and smartphone users can now download the BWW app for Android and iOS. The app will enable you to access Big White Wall on the go, at any time.

The apps are free to download and use, but you will still need to join via the desktop version of the site when you sign up for the first time.
