Breathing Space

Breathing Space is a free, confidential phone and web-based service for people in Scotland experiencing low mood, depression or anxiety.

Sometimes our thoughts and feelings overwhelm us to the point where it becomes difficult to cope with everyday life. Carers can call Breathing Space to speak to a specialist adviser.

Breathing Space aims to provide:

  • an alternative and easily accessible ‘first stop’ service
  • assistance at an early stage in order to stop problems from escalating
  • empathy, understanding and advice through active listening
  • hope when none exists
  • direction for those who do not know where to seek help
