Telephone Helplines

We can all experience times where we are struggling and finding it hard to cope.  It is important to let someone know how we are feeling, but we can find it it difficult to talk to someone we know.   You could call your GP and ask for an emergency appointment.


If you are unwell and feel it can’t wait until your GP surgery re-opens Call NHS 24 on 111 If you think it is an Emergency Call 999  NHS24


Contact details for Glasgow GP's, Social Work Dpartment or Community Mental Health Teams can be found at the bottom of this page.
