Are you experiencing anxiety? Contacting a free, confidential hotline in Scotland can help.

Anxiety can affect anyone. It can be overwhelming and difficult to deal with, especially if it's not something you've experienced before. But you're not alone in what you're going through. If you think you might be experiencing anxiety, there are {{numberofresults}} in Scotland who are there to help. Anxiety symptoms may look like:

  • Changes in appetite
  • Overthinking social situations or conversations
  • Feeling like you're out of control
  • Suddenly feeling hot or cold
  • Feeling irritable or on edge
  • Sudden shortness of breath
  • Struggling to concentrate or focus because you're distracted by worrying
  • Avoiding situations that cause worry

These are normal experiences for someone with anxiety. Sometimes you might experience them mildly. Other times your experience of anxiety might be so intense and overwhelming that you feel like you are going to die.

Tackling these thoughts and feelings on your own can be really difficult, but it's important to know that there are ways to manage your anxiety. There are people in Scotland who understand and want to help you get through this.

If you feel like you might need support with anxiety, try reaching out to a hotline in Scotland. It's free and confidential.
