Humankind has been delivering Health and Wellbeing projects for children, young people and adults for many years.
Health and Wellbeing services are usually commissioned by councils and we work very closely with them to deliver the safest and most effective services possible. We also develop and pilot innovative new models.
We regularly work in partnership and consortium models. It’s the way we do things across our charity work and it means that we can draw on local and national expertise and experience to address the different, individual needs of our service users.
We take what’s known as an “asset-based” approach. We draw upon people’s strengths, their aspirations, and their relationships within their communities to achieve lasting resilience and outcomes.
Humankind uses different psychosocial intervention methods and models. They include Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Neuro-linguistic Programming, as well as Systemic Families Therapy models, all of which are used across our services.
Along with our asset-based approach, we maximise the benefits of our Health and Wellbeing services. Service users feel more empowered. They feel more a part of their community. We’ve seen their self-esteem rise. We’re able to strengthen all-important coping mechanisms. And we help our service users find new ways to integrate with local people.
