Health and Therapeutic Services
The Beehive Project acknowledges that many of the young people accessing our services suffer from mental health issues. This could be post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder or a range of other complexities. Moving homes is a disruptive time for anyone, and the stress of this can exacerbate any present or underlying mental health conditions in our young people.
The Beehive Project has close working relationships with local health organisations and a host of experienced counsellors, covering an array of services to support our residents. During relocation, there is often a delay in transferring existing services to the new local borough, and we recognise that it can take time to go through the referral process to access mental health services in Hampshire. To lessen this struggle, and where agreeable to the local authority, we utilise our own in-house registered psychologist and counsellor to ease this transition, and to allow access to prescription medication where required.
We use referrals from our counsellors, and the local doctors surgery to expedite the procedures needed to access Hampshire’s mental health services including College Keep, Antelope House and Yellow Door. During this wait, our young people can have regular appointments with the counsellor and psychologist, dependent on which best suits their needs. At this stage, residents are also assessed by our trained staff to help determine which services will be the most beneficial for each young person.Referral
