GoTo Youth Service

GoTo is our mental health support service for young people aged 14-18 in South Lanarkshire, in collaboration with Regen:FX

GoTo is an early intervention, community wellness service carefully designed to address the issues that cause poor mental health in vulnerable young people. Our trauma-informed Youth Workers and CBT Counsellors, who are trained in a range of specialist areas, develop a therapeutic alliance with every young person, allowing them to explore sensitive personal issues within the safety of a professional, welcoming, non-clinical and youth-focused environment.  

The aim of GoTo is to empower young people to focus on their strengths, helping them to improve their confidence and self-esteem, while also developing resilience and coping skills. Our blended approach provides the young person with choice of 3 levels of engagement:

Youth Work Interventions (Level 1)

  • Volunteering
  • Teambuilding
  • Performing arts classes
  • Active Citizenship
  • Youth Leader & Peer Mentoring training courses

Psychosocial Interventions (Level 2)

  • Stress management
  • Mindfulness
  • Psychosocial education
  • Training (including coping skills and social skills)
  • Harm reduction
  • Relapse prevention
  • Topic-specific group work

Level 3: Counselling and Psychological Therapies (Level 3)

  • One-to-one counselling
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • CBT groupwork programmes (e.g., anxiety / stress / depression / emotional regulation)
  • Psychological therapies  

The three levels of our GoTo service offer a menu of options for the young person to improve their physical, mental, and emotional health. Level 3 therapies can complement any elements from Level 1 or 2, allowing the young person to engage in all three at once if they wish.
