Out of Hours & Crisis Support
The Clinical Psychology Collective (CPC) is not an emergency service and therefore unfortunately does not have the facility to offer crisis or emergency help.
As an online clinic based in Edinburgh, we have provided local and nationwide service details, many which offer a crisis service or are available 24 hours a day.
Note: These lists are not exhaustive. Should you wish for further resources please speak with your GP or speak to any current health worker you are involved with. You can also use Google or any other search engine to search for relevant local services, or further national helplines.
