Psychological Services Public Helpline for Covid-19 distress:
01698 687 567
NHS Lanarkshire psychological services are running a helpline for members of the public experiencing difficulties with anxiety, low mood and other distress during the Covid-19 outbreak.
The helpline provides a combination of information and signposting plus a call-back service for people who are experiencing more severe distress.
From Monday 27th April 2020 the lines will be open from 10am-6pm Monday to Friday. Call 01698 687 567.
Monday 27th April 2020 Communities Together will launch and operate out of Bellshill YMCA (294 Main Street Bellshill ML4 1AB) Communities Together is an initiative created as a response to the needs of the Bellshill, Mossend, and Thorniewood Areas in North Lanarkshire against the backdrop of Coronavirus.
Operating via a helpline on 01698 747483 or via email ContactUs@communitiestogether.scot our friendly team will be on hand to prepare food parcels and other essentials for delivery to vulnerable people during this difficult time. The group will also support the collection and delivery of key items including prescriptions to vulnerable people and can facilitate the collection of shopping for those who require a shopper to get out and do this for them. We will also signpost and give information via the helpline where people can be linked in to Befriending for a telephone call and give information on other services, through adding information packs to the deliveries.
As the NHS and HSE can’t deliver our Stress Control classes in the community just now, Dr Jim White will, instead, live-stream the classes, free-of-charge, starting on Monday 11th May. You can watch the sessions either in the afternoon or evening.
All you need to successfully complete this class is to watch each of the six sessions, read the booklets and use the relaxation and mindfulness. You can find the sessions on YouTube.
