Mental health and wellbeing

It is perfectly normal to feel worried during exceptional times such as this. However, if you are starting to feel overwhelmed, it's important to acknowledge your feelings and speak to someone you trust. This might be a friend, family member or GP.

You can also call NHS24 (shortcode 111) or Breathing Space on 0800 83 85 87.

You can also get support and advice from the following:

A National Wellbeing Hub for the health and social care workforce has been launched, which will act as a ‘front door’ to the wide range of support and wellbeing resources available in Scotland. 

The Hub has been developed with partners across health and social care and unpaid carer organisations. It is a resource for the whole workforce, including unpaid carers, volunteers deployed within health and social care services, and their families. Read the unpaid carers section.
