Season 3, Episode 6: Rethinking the approach to young people’s mental health

In the Catch22Minutes podcast, we delve into some of today’s major social challenges. We speak to frontline experts, industry leaders and young people, in pursuit of ideas for reforming public services.

The third season focuses on risk and resilience and is presented by Catch22’s Director of Communications and Engagement, Melissa Milner. Our episodes look at topics including child exploitation, online harms, county lines, substance abuse and more.

In this episode of Catch22Minutes, we take a look at how we can rethink the approach to young people’s mental health services through one of our own services, The Hive.

The Hive is a free mental health and wellbeing service that supports all young people age 16-24 in London. Based at The Hive building in Camden, they support young people with mental health, personal development, health and wellbeing, sexual health, employment and education, and substance misuse. The Hive delivers support in a combination of one-to-one sessions, group work, a sexual health clinic, and crucially, through a social hub. Essentially, the Hive delivers mental health support to young people in a very different way.

To explore The Hive model and to discuss its effectiveness, we are joined by Krystal Donaldson, Service Manager at The Hive, and Katie Clayton, Clinical Team Lead for Camden and Islington NHS Trust.
