Announcing a new online mental health support service for young people on the Isle of Wight

Young people who are feeling down, anxious, stressed, confused or going through a tough time can now access free, anonymous 24/7 support from Big White Wall. The service is for those aged 16-24 and living on the Isle of Wight.

Big White Wall provides safe, anonymous online support to help people take control and feel better. Members can share experiences in confidence, express themselves in words and images, and access a library of self-care resources, including clinical tests, tips and guided group programmes. Trained counsellors are online at all times to keep members safe and provide extra support.

Young people aged 16-24 and living on the Isle of Wight can access this 24/7 support by entering their postcode at www.bigwhitewall.com.
