Advice on being safe and healthy

Staying well during the pandemic

We encourage our students to keep updated with information given by the NHS and the Public Health England's site.

Big White Wall

City of Westminster College students going through a tough time can now access free online support with Togetherall. Whether you’re struggling to sleep, feeling low, stressed or unable to cope, Togetherall can help you get support, take control and feel better. 

You will have access to a 24/7 online global community and professional support from trained professionals. Togetherall provides a safe space online to get things off your chest, explore your feelings, get creative and learn how to self-manage your mental health and wellbeing.

On Togetherall, you are totally anonymous to other members in the community, and your personal information is kept secure while you are on the site (see Big White Wall’s privacy statement here). The college will not be informed if you’ve signed up to Togetherall or know of your activity on the service unless they are seriously concerned about your safety. 

Most members report feeling better and more able to cope with their workloads as a result of using the service and nearly 90% use Togetherall outside of 9-5pm.

To join, simply go to  www.togetherall.com and sign up under ‘organisation’ with your college e-mail address.

Wellbeing

Taking care of your mind as well as your body is really important while staying at home because of coronavirus (COVID-19).

You may feel bored, frustrated or lonely. You may also be low, worried or anxious, or concerned about your finances, your health or those close to you.

It's important to remember that it is OK to feel this way and that everyone reacts differently. Remember, this situation is temporary and, for most of us, these difficult feelings will pass. Staying at home may be difficult, but you are helping to protect yourself and others by doing it.
