Chat with Charlie
Establishing help where it is needed
The Charlie Watkins Foundation (CWF) and Mid and North East Essex Mind are working in conjunction with the University of Essex to aim to turn a problem into a solution.
There is a growing problem in the UK, which is the lack counselling support for those who need it. This is why the CWF and Mid and North East Essex Mind believe that we can make a change. Chat with Charlie is an online mental health support service which is open to all students of the University of Essex and Writtle University College. It operates between 6pm-10pm, seven evenings a week. The service will provide students with a confidential space to talk about any mental health or emotional wellbeing problems they are facing and find out more about the support available to them.
In time we hope that this can be rolled out nation-wide so that universities all over the country to benefit.
