If you need support over the holidays remember you can access the Big White Wall whenever you need to.
Big White Wall is an online mental health support service free for all BU students available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. It's completely anonymous meaning you can express yourself freely and openly, safe in the knowledge that professionally trained Wall Guides are monitoring the community.
In addition to Big White Wall's online community, there is also access to a wealth of useful information on the site, including tailored self-help programmes covering topics such as anxiety, sleep, weight management, depression and many more.
Access to this service is free to all BU students - when you click on the ‘join us’ section you simply need to enter a few details under the ‘organisation’ section, but all details will remain completely anonymous. You should also set up a username that can't be identified to you. After 6 months you'll receive a reminder from BWW with an option to renew your account. Register now.
Kerry Rolls, Student Wellbeing Coordinator at BU, explains: "Providing access to the Big White Wall is part of our commitment to help any student struggling with a wide range of issues such as homesickness, lifestyle concerns and low mood or anxiety. As well as Big White Wall, BU students can access a number of other services to support their mental and physical wellbeing, including the chaplaincy, sports clubs and facilities, arts and music activities, as well as careers and placement advisers".
