From September next year, all secondary school pupils in Scotland will have access to free professional counselling services. 

The Scottish Government have signed a four-year agreement with the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities and will spend £60 million to build and expand on existing provision. Mental Health Minister Clare Haughey has said that by providing each secondary school with “access to at least one counsellor by next year is a significant step forward in our package of measure to improve the mental health support available for children and young people.”
