Here is a short list of phone numbers you can contact for support when most services are closed. It is a good idea to have these numbers and others where you can find them when you need support or help.
Social Work and the NHS are more appropriate if you need more than this.
Breathing Space - 0800 83 85 87 (6.00pm-2.00am)
Samaritans - 08457 90 90 90 (24 hours)
NHS 24 - 0845 24 24 24 (24 hours)
Emergency Social Work Service - 0800 731 6969 (out of hours only)
Edinburgh Crisis Centre Service
Free phone 0808 801 0414 (24 hours)
Text phone 0808 801 0415 (24 hours)
(calls to these numbers are free from mobiles too)
If you get support at home, you may have an ‘on-call’ number to contact staff. If you have contact with a Community Mental Health Team, they may also have a number for you to contact staff.

AdvoCard - 0131 554 5307 (community - Monday to Friday 9am - 5pm)
