Kensington Palace: Prince Harry to visit Big White Wall
Monday 27th February, 2017
Prince Harry will visit the digital mental health service Big White Wall at their London office on Monday 27th February.
The online service offers immediate access to both peer and professional support from specially trained clinicians to its members who are dealing with issues related to their mental health. Big White Wall is one of the CONTACT coalition, the military charity partner of Their Royal Highnesses’ Head’s Together Campaign.
Whilst anyone aged 16 and over can access the service, Big White Wall sees a large number of ex-service personnel, their families and the families of those still serving seek help online for issues including anxiety, depression, stress, anger or early stage alcoholism. Since 2010, with support from the Ministry of Defence, Help for Heroes and NHS England, Big White Wall has supported thousands of these individuals in the UK.
All Big White Wall members have anonymous access to a supportive community of peers, clinically moderated forums, self-help materials and a range of online group courses. Big White Wall also offers one-to-one therapy online via text, audio and video, 16 hours a day, seven days a week. The service is available to 31% of the UK population via local NHS contracts. It is also widely commissioned by UK universities, public and private sector employers.
Prince Harry will be taken through Big White Wall’s online services with a live demonstration at the London office. His Royal Highness will then meet the service’s clinicians who deliver Big White Wall’s services, and hear more in particular about their work supporting serving or ex-service personnel with their mental health.
