At The Hummingbird Project we are a bit unusual, a bit quirky, a bit different from the norm. We are disruptors, boundary pushers, challenging the norms in traditional mental health service provision and leading the charge for doing things differently.
Our lived experience of having suffered mental ill health in addition to our professional training means we are trauma informed, passionate and authentic. There is no them and us. We leave the stigma at the door and work alongside our clients to develop a plan tailor made to them.
As a much-needed addition to existing services, our vision is to provide a new model for mental health services rooted in the community that moves beyond traditional medical interventions.
Our 3U-Model© makes us unique. It stands for Understand, Unlock and Uplift and has been designed to empower people to determine their own mental health. Together we focus on their goals, work to unlock their strengths, build support networks, remove barriers and help them move forward in their lives. More about the 3U-Model© here.
Our role is to support people, no matter the setting or where they appear on the emotional health spectrum, by sharing our personal and professional knowledge and expertise to help them determine their own emotional health and wellbeing outcomes.

We have worked in partnership with The Hummingbird Project several times in the past few years, with them delivering emotional resilience programs with our clients. The programs left our clients with sustainable, person centred skills and tools that they are still using as a group and individually to increase their emotional resilience and seek support earlier when they are dealing with issues
