Big White Wall

University of Kent students wherever they are located can access free, 24/7 online support for issues around mental health and wellbeing. The Big White Wall (BWW) is a Care Quality Commission registered service recognised nationally through awards by the NHS and is a safe environment overseen by qualified therapists called Wall Guides. It offers: 

  • peer talk therapies where members initiate or join forums on topics ranging from depression and anxiety to relationship issues, work stress, abuse, self-harm and eating disorders
  • peer support and networks where students make ‘friends’ to create a support network as a reference group, source of motivation and a means to improve self-awareness
  • creative therapies employing art and writing therapies where members express themselves on ’bricks’ that are posted to the Big White Wall where they can choose to share and discuss the underlying ‘story’
  • brief counselling providing immediate 24/7 support from Big White Wall Guides who are trained counsellors
  • 24/7 guided groups that are based in therapeutic approaches such as interpersonal therapy and cognitive behaviour therapy
