Living Life is a free, appointment based telephone service for people who are feeling low, depressed or anxious and is available across Scotland. The scheme is designed to help people aged 16 and over living with mild to moderate low mood, anxiety and depression.
The telephone service provides accessible, user friendly Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and puts people more in control of their mental health. CBT is an evidence-based and structured form of psychotherapy which aims to alter unhelpful thinking and behaviour which commonly occurs during times of distress. There is a broad awareness that psychological therapies such as CBT can provide long term benefits to patients.
People can access the service by telephone from the privacy of their own home – and the telephone calls are to a free phone number.
The service is open from 1.00pm to 9.00pm Monday to Friday, excluding Public Holidays, with appointments being made to suit the patient.
People can call the service directly on 0800 328 9655 without having to go via their GP.
