Mental Health and Suicide – Awareness raising animations

NHS Health Scotland and NHS Education for Scotland (NES) jointly developed a series of animations. They highlight the range of communication skills that should be used including listening, questioning and responding to help someone who may be struggling with their mental health. They also provide information on how to get immediate help and support. The final animation also looks at how to look after our own mental health.

There are three animations in the series:

Ask, Tell, Every life matters https://vimeo.com/338176393

Ask, Tell, Have healthy conversation https://vimeo.com/338176444

Ask, Tell, Look after your mental health https://vimeo.com/338176495This animation explores the issue of suicide, including statistics and facts about suicide in Scotland. It helps learners understand the signs that people may be…

Scottish Welfare Fund

Scottish Government sees it as crucial that, alongside any food aid support which people may be receiving, everyone is accessing the money that they are entitled to, including the Scottish Welfare Fund where appropriate. Information on how to access the Scottish Welfare Fund in your local area is available here, along with information about national advice services:

Kidzeco KidzStart 

KidzStart are still taking referrals for families struggling for any baby essentials and we will do their best to provide items free for them.  KidzStart don’t have a large supply of prams and cots but do have moses baskets, baths, bottles, warmers, nappies etc and are happy to deliver to the families (in West Lothian).

Carers of West Lothian    

Carers of West Lothian are still offering their service to carers, young carers and disabled adults just a bit differently during the current COVID-19 situation. Like many services, we are following government guidance and have closed our centre and are all working remotely.  We are continuing to offer telephone and online support which is open to people already registered with us and also to any new referrals/self-referrals.  We are open Monday – Friday 9am-5pm.

We can be contacted by:
Tel: 01506 448 000 (calls will be diverted to a member of support staff)
email: office@carers-westlothian.com, www.carers-westlothian.com
Facebook: @CarersofWestLothian

We are also offering our groups virtually using zoom to help keep us and the people we support connected which is going to be vital over the coming weeks/months. Details of this can be found on our social media and website.

Our team will also now work from home on alternative weeks but this means that at all times there will be someone at Carers of West Lothian to answer calls, provide advice, signpost to other services around the area, and importantly to provide support to people over the telephone.

If you are working with anyone who is struggling to look after a loved one or who is a disabled adult please remind them how to get in contact with us.  Our phones will be answered during our core hours (9 to 5 pm) and we will continue to post about support and latest news that impacts on carers or disabled adults, using our social media channels and through our website.  If you have any questions please contact me at the number below.  We will continue to work with you to support unpaid carers and disabled adults over the coming weeks, we might just be doing it in a slightly different and more innovative way.
