It’s likely that anyone may understandably experience emotional distress, or feelings of hopelessness. It is also possible that some people might feel depressed or low, or that it’s all getting too much. We recognise that other types of dedicated support will be needed in these kind of scenarios so with that in mind we have set up the Grampian Psychological Resilience Hub for additional support with your own mental health and the mental health of a family member.
