Coventry University students and staff now have access to additional mental health support thanks to the University joining online mental health community the Big White Wall.

The Big White Wall (BWW) is a digital mental health support service which is available online 24/7, and is completely anonymous for students and staff to express themselves freely and openly.

In addition to BWW’s online community, the website also provides access to a wealth of useful information including tailored self-help programmes covering topics such as anxiety, sleep, weight management, depression and many more.

The health and wellbeing of our students and staff is a high priority. We are really pleased to join the Big White Wall community as it offers an additional stream of support to all our students and staff. This could be especially helpful during the current period of exams.

Luthfun Nessa, Wellbeing and mental Health Officer at Coventry University Students’ Union

The Big White Wall is just one of many ways Coventry University supports the health and wellbeing of their students and staff. Other support available includes their mental health service, counselling, welfare team, Medical Centre, disability advisors, Spirituality and Faith Centre, specific support for care leavers and a health and wellbeing app.

For more information about the Big White Wall or to get involved please visit the Big White Wall website.
