Who Are We?
We are a support service to promote and enhance positive mental health change for children and young people. across the UK.
At HSO, children and young people are more than the difficulties or challenges they experience, they are individuals to be valued, nurtured, and encouraged to be the very best of who they are, and for some, this comes with support and guidance.
We are a CIC, working alongside our Community to guide and empower Children and Young People.
We run 5 programs within our service, to benefit all children and young people from all walks of life.
HSO is proud to be delivering five programs across the UK focusing on; Self Esteem and Resilience (Legacy), Mental Health (Phoenix), Mental Health Online Hub (OhanaMind) Criminal Exploitation, Criminal Justice and County Lines (SHEILD), and Those at risk of becoming homeless (Hygge).

My child is so much less anxious
“When we had our first consultation with Michaela, our child was top level anxious. Over a course of 6 weeks – he was able to recongnise thought patterns and understand that he could control his ‘BIG’ emotions. We are indebted to you and your team.”

Early Intervention works!
“I was suffering from low mood and experienced times of anxiety that would cripple me during day-to-day activities. After a consultation with HSO, I was offered a 1:1 sessions at the place of my choosing – and I haven’t looked back! My confidence is back and finally I’m enjoying life again.
Thank you HSO.
“ Just wanted to say huge thanks for organising the HSO programme. It has been amazing how in just a few sessions she has opened up to Jade and chatted freely with her about her worries and what makes her stressed. It has felt like she has really personalised the sessions and also incorporated elements we have talked about as strategies we currently use to further embed those for her.
We are so grateful for her to have these sessions. Please pass on this our thanks to Jade and Michaela and let them know that we feel they are having a positive impact already on her wellbeing."
