Counselling for 10-18 year-olds
Are you worried about the mental health of someone aged 10-18 years in your care?
Our partner agency MYPAS (Midlothian Young People’s Advice Service) offers counselling for people in the 10-18 age group, whether or not they are in 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 can go to MYPAS directly if:
- they are not at a local authority school
- or they have left school
- or they do not want the referral to go through the Education service.
Must have child's consent
The child or young person can only be referred with their consent.
