Midlothian’s Mental Health and Resilience Service (MHARS) is a free confidential helpline for Midlothian residents aged 18-65, who experience mental health and wellbeing distress or crisis.

The service offers same-day direct access to compassionate support from a trained mental health practitioner. You don’t have to be referred by your GP or a healthcare professional.

You will have a short confidential conversation about your needs and will then receive a call back within an hour from an appropriate Mental Health and Well Being Practitioner. 

MHARS practitioners can connect you to relevant community resources, services and activities. They can also tailor the support to include carers, family, friends and other partner agencies.

Call MHARS 0800 118 2962 between 8am–10pm, 7 days a week.
