Research has shown 1 in 6 children aged 5-16 likely to have a mental health problem, 17 to 22 year old women are the group most at risk of developing a mental health problem.
One of the core priorities of Inclusion Hampshire as an organisation is to provide a more holistic approach to education, responding to this ever increasing need to support the mental health and wellbeing of our learners. The various additional services we provide reflect this approach.
At Inclusion College, we offer Counselling services to all our students. Our qualified Counsellors have significant experience in working with young people from a range of differing backgrounds and environments.
They are able to support and work with our young people experiencing issues which may include anxiety, bereavement, depression, self-harm, trauma, and gender or sexuality.
Our counsellors have developed a student led approach which is adapted to best suit the needs of the individual they are working with, be that one on one sessions, group chat or more informal sessions.
The team listen and support in a confidential and non-judgemental way. Students have the opportunity to have an informal chat during the day or have timetabled sessions. These are not time limited.
