bigwhitewall.com is a free online space where serving personnel, veterans and their families can talk about what’s troubling them and get help and support in a safe environment whenever they need it.
The service is easy to use, completely anonymous and available 24/7. Trained professionals are online at all times to ensure everyone is safe.
Traditionally it’s men who find it difficult to talk about what’s on their mind but on the Big White Wall (BWW) they have found a place to open up. 60 per cent of BWW members from the Armed Forces community are male.
One member of BWW, currently serving, and who wishes to remain anonymous, said:
BWW helped me feel less alone in Afghanistan. For a base with 15,000 people, Camp Bastion was a pretty lonely place. It’s good to know BWW is with me wherever and whenever I need it.
BWW allows people from the Armed Forces community to get support from like-minded people to express what they’re really feeling. Members can choose to vent and express how they feel in words through a ‘Talkabout’ or images by making ‘Bricks’.
They can share issues with members of the community or trained professionals, called Wall Guides, who are online at all times. They can also conduct tests to help them understand common issues such as depression and anxiety and access lots of useful information.
BWW has professionally-led guided groups designed to help people deal with issues from work stress to getting a better night’s sleep.
The website also produces a free fortnightly email, with hints and tips for members of the Armed Forces community about topical, everyday issues that may affect them.
For example, how to deal with stress, relationship problems, money issues or simply how to think about things differently to make positive change. There’s no need to join BWW to receive wallpaper.
Armed Forces Day will be on Saturday, 29 June 2013.
It's an opportunity to do two things. Firstly, to raise public awareness of the contribution made to our country by those who serve and have served in Her Majesty's Armed Forces, Secondly, it gives the nation an opportunity to Show Your Support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently serving troops to Service families and from veterans to cadets.
Across the country people are getting involved: communities hold local events and business show their support.
The National Event will be held in Nottingham, but there are many more events up and down the country being held in support of Armed Forces Day.
