In Crisis?

Why BWW works

Clinical expertise

Clinically managed and designed to support those with mild to moderate need, while having the infrastructure to case manage individuals at risk

Healthy community

Our vibrant community can scale to any population, offering a proven way to get better together through peer to peer, anonymous conversation

Safe solution

Moderated 24/7 by trained practitioners who keep our members safe, and facilitate the process of people helping people in an online environment

The power of peer-to-peer support

BWW harnesses the protective and therapeutic effects of connectedness and healthy social networks in its unique community where people share with, and support each other. The evidence is convincing, the wider determinants of health such as the communities in which we exist have a more beneficial impact than individual lifestyle factors and health behaviours. Innovative technology, and first class clinical teams and trained moderators, create a unique environment for members to lead their own recovery.

The charter we live by

Everything we do links back to 3 core principles:

Access for many

We aim to help as many people as possible, with no discrimination

Measurable impact

We want to improve the mental wellbeing of members and deliver real benefit to commissioning organisations

Self-sufficiency

We follow a financially self-reliant business model with the ability to attract investment to meet our ambitions

We’re here for the long haul

In 2008, stigma around mental health was widespread and there was a complete lack of safe, judgement-free spaces to talk about depression and anxiety. We started with the idea of combining emerging online forums where people supported one another and clinical support, and shortly expanded our service to include creative tools, courses and web-based therapy. Over a decade later, we have a vibrant community and an extensive clinical team to provide much needed 24 hour support to expanding populations. We are backed by Impact Ventures UK, the pioneering investment fund that enables purpose-driven businesses to scale and achieve their potential.

Why are we called Big White Wall? Over a decade ago, we took inspiration from the displacement of a community in London who were encouraged to write their thoughts and feelings on the walls before their homes were demolished and rebuilt. Our name represents opportunity and a blank space to truly say what you’re thinking.
