There’s a little girl that sits in the dirt of the Hull Services garden, happily picking radishes to her heart’s content. They were planted just for her because gardening is more than a favorite hobby, it’s a form of therapy. She loves to pick, and the repetitive process calms and regulates her. She is usually connected with a caregiver to keep her safe from running into danger, but in the garden she is free.
A language barrier sometimes means a cauliflower is enthusiastically pulled and hoisted above her head, with a triumphant shout of “radish” but that’s ok. This isn’t just a place to nurture plants — it’s really about nurturing kids.
Hull Services provides an integrated continuum of 29 programs and services including specialized therapy, counselling and education. Hull helps children, youth, young adults and families who experience emotional and psychological disorders, behavioural problems, learning disabilities, mental illness, developmental delay, neglect and abuse and family breakdown.
Our programs and services range from prevention and early intervention support, through to campus-based care.
We provide eleven self-referral programs and services open to the public without requiring a referral by a health care professional, service or agency and 18 managed referral programs that are not accessible to the public. These are managed by health care professionals, Children’s Services, Alberta Health Services or other agencies.
With your support we can help even more children, adults and families who experience significant mental health, behavioural and developmental challenges.
Hull Services needs your help. Calgary has more than 300,000 children. Nearly 20 per cent or 60,000 are facing a mental health challenge. Every day of the year we respond to the needs of thousands of children and their families, who have been impacted by serious childhood mental health challenges.
Hull Services believes we can move the 20 per cent of children in harm’s way to join the 80 per cent who are doing pretty well, making a better future for 100 per cent of our children. They deserve our help, for the good of us all.
