NHS Living Life is a free telephone service available to anyone in Scotland feeling low, depressed or anxious.
Our self-help coaches and therapists can help you understand some of the reasons why you are feeling low, address negative patterns of thinking and can teach new ways of coping.
Living Life can be accessed either through a referral by your GP or by contacting the service directly by calling 0800 328 9655 (Mon to Fri, 1pm – 9pm).
What happens after phoning Living Life?
After contacting the service, a questionnaire is sent for completion and return. Arrangements are then made to call and discuss the type of support best suited to your needs.
Living Life offers two types of telephone support:
- Living Life Guided Self-Help involves guided telephone support with a self-help coach over 6-8 weeks.
- Living Life CBT offers specialist support with a fully trained therapist over 6-9 telephone sessions.
