Better mental health support needed for teenagers

A better mental health provision in Aberdeenshire.

counsellors or mental health professionals in all schools at least 1 day a week.

Why the contribution is important

As a guidance teacher I spend a large amount off time trying to help pupils with mental health issues which I have no real training to do (except from the mental health first aid course). These pupils need professional help but the services just arent available in aberdeenshire and waiting lists to be seen at YPD are long and sometimes referrals are rejected.
