Do you need to talk? Listening Service

by NHS Tayside

Spiritual Support

"People have problems which can overwhelm them and cause distress of varying degrees and many have no-one to talk to as they have a limited support circle or they can't share e.g. family worries with family members" (NHS Tayside GP)

Based in Health and Social Care contexts, Do You Need to Talk is a service that promotes wellbeing by offering an active listening service. The service helps people explore their deepest hurts and draw strength from their own inner resources and those of the communities of support around them.

The service is a short term, early intervention model of person-centred, assets based listening with the aim of promoting personal and communal wellbeing.

"I came away with a feeling of optimism. I have since taken positive steps to make some changes in my like, which have improved my mental and emotional wellbeing." (NHS Tayside patient)
