Are you concerned about someone’s mental health?

Posted on October 26th, 2023

If you are concerned about someone else don’t be afraid to ask, “Are you okay?”, and help them to get help.

There are a number of national and local groups offering support in a time of crisis or mental distress:

• NHS24 Mental Health Hub-Telephone advice and support on healthcare can be obtained from NHS24 on the short code 111; the Mental Health Hub is open 24/7.

• Samaritans-116 123 or via email on jo@samaritans.org (calls are free and do not show on a phone bill)

• Breathing Space -0800 83 85 87 (Monday to Thursday 6pm – 2am; Friday 6pm to Monday 6am)

• North Highland Prevent Suicide Highland Smartphone App Launched in November 2019 by the Highland Community Planning Partnership, the app provides guidance for members of the public in the Highland Council area as to what they can do to help someone experiencing mental distress and perhaps contemplating suicide. The app offers local key contacts, and a safety plan template to help keep you, or others safe. There is also information and support for those bereaved by suicide. The Prevent suicide app is free and is available for both Android and iPhone.
