Feeling overwhelmed or distressed amid COVID-19?

NHS Dumfries and Galloway’s public website provides information, help and advice about mental health and wellbeing during the COVID-19 pandemic. For most people this is sufficient to manage their mental health and wellbeing now and in the weeks and months ahead. This information can be accessed here: https://www.nhsdg.co.uk/mental-health-and-wellbeing-and-co…/

If you feel that you need further information, help or advice you can contact your GP and they will refer you into our new wellbeing hub. Alternatively you can call the hub and leave a message for someone to call you back. The hub staff can be contacted on 01387 244495. Please note the hub is staffed Monday to Friday, 9.00am to 5.00 pm. The hub uses telephone and NHS Near Me secure video conferencing to share advice and guidance.

However, if you are feeling overwhelmed or distressed and need to speak to a mental health professional urgently, you can contact DGRI Switchboard on 01387 246 246 and, depending on your place of residence, your call will be forwarded to either the East Community Mental Health Service or the West Community Mental Health Service.
