Who we are: 

Counselling service for 12 – 18 year olds affected by sudden and unexpected death of family or close friend. Bereavement could have occurred in earlier childhood or recent months but is having a significant impact on day-to-day functioning for the young person.

The service is part of West Lothian Drug and Alcohol service but the death does not need to be substance related.

What we offer:

  • Free one to one counselling either within school, a community centre or health centre. Across the whole of West Lothian.
  • Consultation to schools or professionals working with young people
  • Free training on bereavement awareness

To refer a young person please submit a referral through the Mental Health and Mental Wellbeing screening group, which is part of the Children and Young People’s Team in West Lothian council.  Please indicate the referral is for the Grief Matters Service.
