Schools are under unprecedented strain and the emotional wellbeing of students is of paramount importance in any thriving school, college or any other educational institution. However this need is unfortunately rarely adequately met with options that are bespoke, driven by young people themselves and available at the point of contact.
Progressive, modern and innovative resources are rare, as is clear choice in avenues of support for young people themselves. Hatch is built on these foundations, beginning with our core offer of Electric Islands and Primal being available on site, within school, or at a site across the ODC Campus such as Bloom Building or Blossom Haus. All designed to engage the disengaged and reach those who would otherwise be reluctant, unwilling or unable to access support for issues across the emotional wellbeing spectrum – depression, anxiety, anger, positive relationships, challenging behaviour, panic attacks or self-harm.
It is perfectly complimentary to traditional statutory led offers and arrangements, working alongside to not only present choice to the individual, but also avoid waiting lists and ease pressures on stretched statutory services. We have ongoing working arrangements across the mental health spectrum such as with Health Services in Schools teams, CAMHS, Barnardo’s Young Carers and Action for Children although we are keen to stress that Hatch is completely independent in design, delivery and management.
