Scottish Adult Congenital Cardiac Service (SACCS)


Living with congenital heart disease is physically and psychologically difficult. One in three people with Congenital Heart Disease experience anxiety or depression. 
We understand the effects of living with a heart condition and our psychology team are here to support you.

Our specialist psychology team and our nurse specialists have expertise in talking to you about your emotional wellbeing. We do this by talking with you and letting you tell your story.

We all go through spells of worrying or feeling down, but when you are depressed or have anxiety you feel this way persistently for weeks or months, rather than just a few days. It is important to seek help if you think you may be depressed or have anxiety. With the right treatment and support, most people can make a full recovery.
More information on anxiety, depression or other common psychological problems is available at:
