Mental health problems can affect anyone at any time.

As part of #WorldMentalHealthDay on Thursday 10th October 2019, we thought we would embrace the day and encourage everyone to start looking after their own mental health and well-being. Just like we care for our physical health, our mental health may need some tender loving care at the best of times too.

With this in mind we would like to highlight the Big White Wall (BWW). The Big White Wall is an online interactive site that allows you to connect with others who may be experiencing similar issues whilst gaining support and advice from clinically trained professionals too. The site is safe, anonymous and available 24 hours a day each and every day.

Once you have registered as a member, whether as a Royal Navy veteran, Merchant Navy veteran or Fishing Fleet veteran, you are then able to join in online chats or access guided support through short courses on topics such as:

• coping with grief and loss
• managing stress and anxiety
• eating healthy to feel good.

If you watch the short video clip below you will see one of the Sailors’ Children team giving you a friendly demonstration on how to register as a member of the Big White Wall.

We at the Sailors’ Children’s Society are keen to embrace this service and we hope that we have made registering quick and easy:

If you are a family from the Royal Navy, please click here:

If you are a family from the Merchant Navy or Fisherman’s Fleet, please click here:

We will offer suggestions every other week on a variety of topics that you may want to delve into.
