I liked that the mentors are younger people and understand what it’s like to suffer with mental health personally. It makes them more understanding

Young People

How does hatch work for you?

Everybody has ups and downs in life and goes through challenging times; it’s a natural part of life, and these things having an effect on the way we feel is perfectly normal.

However we aren’t born with the natural ability to cope with
these things on our own.

This is where hatch can help.

We provide a range of programmes to improve your mental health and emotional wellbeing, in a relatable and non-clinical way. These include;

  • 1-1 mental health & wellbeing support via our three tailored interventions; Bazaar, Primal & hatch Wellbeing sessions
  • hatch youth club
  • Half term activities

Our 1-1 support is delivered at our site in Birkenhead by our team of volunteer mentors. The sessions are arranged for the same time each week and can last between 6-8 weeks.

All three programmes help you develop a better understanding of the different areas of mental health and emotional wellbeing, as well as teaching you skills and strategies to help you make positive changes in the areas you’re finding challenging.

Please note: Demand for our service is extremely high, please make sure that you are ready and willing to engage before completing the online form. Not all young people will access 1-1 support if we feel there is a more suitable service available.

To access our support please complete our online form and someone will be in touch to arrange a visit to our site in Birkenhead.

If you feel there are any potential barriers to accessing our our services please contact us to discuss options.
