It’s estimated that 1/4 people will suffer with mental ill health. We also know that talking about it can be difficult. But people no longer have to struggle alone. Whether you’re dealing with a mental health issue or just feel burdened by everyday worries or concerns, Togetherall provides safe, anonymous online support 24/7.
Togetherall provides a supportive, online community to give help when you’re feeling down. Trained professionals are available 24/7, and there’s a choice of safe therapeutic services, including online self-help courses. This means anyone who may be struggling can get support at a time that suits them, from the comfort of their own home.
Togetherall has already helped more than 250,000+ people and it’s available to more than 2 million students globally.
One Togetherall member said: “I feel that the support given by Togetherall is fantastic. You are not judged, and you can be yourself. Most of us are very good at hiding our feelings. This is the only place I have felt comfortable in expressing myself.”
Togetherall is now available for all students for free at Merthyr. Members can simply go to www.Togetherall.com and use their academic email address to join. 71% of members found Togetherall more useful than other services accessed and 4 in 5 who shared a feeling on Togetherall did so for the first time.
One member, who had been working in a stressful environment, said: “I was always the strong one, but when I was signed off with work-related stress, I thought I was a failure. On logging in to Togetherall, I wasn’t alone anymore. I’ve been using it for a year now, and I’m recovering and back at work. I’m truly grateful for Togetherall.”
Another member reported: “I started using it at a time of crisis. I was finding it difficult to manage my distress. Using the site has helped me reduce anxiety, stress and feelings of isolation, enabled me to feel connected to others who have emotional issues, and given me an opportunity to be part of a helping community.”
When a new member joins www.Togetherall.com they create a username, which does not identify them in any way. The service is completely anonymous.
Henry Jones, CEO at Togetherall, said: “Even if schools have resumed face-to-face learning, the impact of this ‘new normal’ is going to have long-lasting effects on student mental health. I am delighted that learners over the age of 16 at Merthyr Tydfil have now access to our online community. Whenever they need a safe place to talk, our community is here to support them, anytime, anywhere.”
