The Scottish Government have produced a free CD of breathing techniques to help patients with stress reduction. We have made them available to download to your computer of phone for you to try. Remember you will only get good from these exercises if you do them regularly and make the time for yourself to do them. Doctors and Therapists can provide the tools for you to reduce stress and anxiety, but only you can do the exercises. Like any exercise, the more often you do it, the easier it gets.

"Legal" does not mean "safe". Legal highs are substances marketed as alternatives to illegal drugs. You are taking a risk buying anything like this, you do not know what is in the packet, or what it may do to your mind or body. Most of these chemicals have not been tested on humans, and several have been linked to deaths. It is best that you have as much information about this, to enable you to take the safest choice for your mental and physical health.
