Story

MYPAS (Midlothian Young People's Advice Service) is  charity that help young people (age12-21) to deal with issues including: sexual health, mental health and drug and alcohol use. They provide counselling services, drop in clinics and support in schools. 

At Penicuik High School, we have been doing a lot of work to raise awareness of mental health for everyone. A number of members of staff have completed the NHS Mental Health First Aid course. This group of teachers (and a S6 pupil) have taken on the challenge of training for the (super hilly) 10k to highlight the benefits of exercise in maintaining our mental health and also to get people talking about mental health as a subject. We are delighted to be able to support MYPAS as part of this challenge.
