Counselling for 10-18-year-olds

Do you have a child or young person aged 10-18 years in your care and you are worried about their mental health?

Our partner agency, MYPAS (Midlothian Young People’s Advice Service) offers counselling for young people in the 10-18 age group, regardless of whether they are at school education or training.

How to get support

Parents and carers of primary-age children (P6 and P7) can contact the head teacher of their child's school to get a referral. 

In secondary schools, supported self-referrals by young people are managed by guidance teams. Young people not at a local authority school, have left school or who do not want the referral to go through Education, can go to MYPAS directly.

Must have child's consent

The child or young person can only be referred with their consent.
