Organisation aims and objectives

Midlothian Young People's Advice Service (MYPAS) is an independent community based organisation that provides a wide range of integrated and creative services to improve young people's health and well being across Midlothian. We employ a youth work approach using a variety of methods to focus on young people's sexual health, mental health and substance use needs. Although we are a universal service we make specific efforts to target disadvantaged young people often working in partnership with voluntary and public sector partners. We operate from a central base in Dalkeith but provide a significant proportion of our serviceson an outreach basis with support being provided in venues that are accessible and acceptable to young people.
