NEECS 16-25

Organisation : North East Edinburgh Counselling Service (NEECS)
Grant Amount : £ 15,478

To provide dedicated access and a quick response to pre-counselling assessment and counselling for young people aged 16 – 25 who are at risk of harm due to issues affecting their mental wellbeing. The need for such a service has been identified through NEECS work with this client group over a number of years. The new project would address both access and waiting times, which are key in addressing issues of self harm. This service would benefit from the professional expertise of NEECS, its existing relationship with local GP practices and other voluntary organisations, which would facilitate access for the target client group.
