There is now a health and wellbeing drop-in in the Newbattle area for young people aged 12-21. The drop-in is delivered jointly by MYPAS, Midlothian Council and NHS Lothian School Nursing. The drop-in is accredited by Healthy Respect.
Young people can turn up without an appointment and can receive advice, information and services about sexual health and relationships, mental health, substance use and other aspects of health and wellbeing. Young people can access free condoms as the drop-in is part of the c:card service as well as pregnancy testing and emergency contraception. Staff can also refer young people onto specialist services including counselling and drugs and alcohol support.
