Veterans First point (Fife) Update 11/05/2020
V1P Fife Temporary suspension of service
The Fife V1P service is temporarily suspended during the Coronavirus outbreak. This means that the drop-in and any appointments for peer support or psychological therapy are cancelled until further notice and the service is closed to new referrals. This decision has been taken as some of our staff are likely to be sent to help in other parts of the health service.
Telephone point of contact
During this period, the service is planning to provide a telephone point of contact for those veterans currently in contact with the service who are looking for general information and advice.
The number is 07976739583 and the line is staffed by our peer support worker on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 09:00 - 17:00.
The Mood Cafe website https://www.moodcafe.co.uk/offers useful ideas on managing stress during this period.
If you are in need of urgent mental health assistance or support please contact your GP, NHS 111, Samaritans (116 123), Breathing Space (0800 838587) or the Combat Stress Helpline (0800 1381619).
We look forward to resuming service as normal as soon we can.
