Staff and students at Glasgow Clyde College will be able to access the Big White Wall, a safe and confidential online community that has been launched by the college to help support people’s mental health.

The site will provide a link between students and colleagues to offer support, advice, creative tools and resources to help one another during this period of self-isolation.

Students and staff will be able to access help and information from trained professionals and will be able to take part in self-assessments.

Jack Lenehan, Learning Inclusion Advisor, Glasgow Clyde College, said: “As we are faced with new ways of studying and working and the challenges of isolation, Glasgow Clyde College is launching its Big White Wall service for students and staff.

“The Big White Wall is a safe, confidential community for students and staff to support mental health.”

The service is free to use and access can be gained 24 hours a day.

Glasgow Clyde College closed its doors temporarily on the 17th of March, as the Government has advised citizens to self-isolate while the country is attempting to “flatten the peak” of the spread of Coronavirus.
