Recovery Focus has teamed up with online service Big White Wall to provide anonymous support to all staff and individuals using its partner services.
Big White Wall is an online early intervention service for people in psychological distress. The service combines social networking principles with a choice of clinically informed interventions to improve mental health and wellbeing.
It can be accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and has wall guides who ensure the full engagement, safety and anonymity of all members.
Staff and those using Recovery Focus' partner services (Richmond Fellowship, Aquarius, DVIP and My Time) have been encouraged to sign up to the free web portal.
Mary Wishart, Group Director of Business Development at Recovery Focus said:
"We’re really proud to be teaming up with Big White Wall to offer this fantastic service free of charge to everyone at Recovery Focus. As a Group, we’re committed to the wellbeing of both staff and those using our partner services."
