Breathing Space is a free, confidential, phone service for anyone in Scotland experiencing low mood, depression or anxiety.

Opening hours:
Weekdays: Monday - Thursday, 6pm to 2am

We are here in times of difficulty to provide a safe and supportive space by listening, and providing information.

Breathing Space aims to provide:
- an alternative and easily accessible ‘first stop’ service
- assistance at an early stage in order to stop problems escalating
- empathy, understanding and information through active listening
- hope when none exists
- direction for those who do not know where to seek help

So don't let problems get out of hand, phone Breathing Space, where experienced advisors will listen.
