Colin Beattie MSP for Midlothian North and Musselburgh welcomed the announcement that the Midlothian Young People’s Advice Service (MYPAS) is receiving a £282,442 grant from the Big Lottery Fund. The grant will be used to support the Young People’s Family Therapy Project which allows people aged 12-18 with mental health difficulties to participate in individual and family counselling. The aim of the counselling is to enable these young people to have better relationships with their family, school and community.
Colin Beattie MSP said:
“The additional support provided by this grant for MYPAS will allow them to expand their work and benefit those in the community that need it most. I know this project will help young people throughout Midlothian to develop the skills they need to thrive as adults.
“MYPAS has been a valuable asset to the Midlothian community and I look forward to the positive role they will continue to play in my constituency.”
