Mobility Quotient and Hull Services team up to create a provide easier access to public mental health solutions for children and families
Calgary Innovation Agency, Mobility Quotient, partners with Hull Services, providing industry leading creative and technical support to enhance Hull’s community involvement and outreach programs.
Hull Services, a Calgary not-for-profit organization, provides leading edge behavioral and mental health services for children and families. Formed in 1962 as Hull Home, staff provide residential treatment for young individuals suffering from emotional and behavioral disorders. Over the last five decades, Hull has expanded their community involvement programs as well as seen large increases in the number of children in their care. In 2000, Hull Home was renamed Hull Services to reflect not just residential care but to emphasize a complete multidimensional agency. Currently assisting over 3500 clients a month, Hull Services focuses on helping children and young adults develop personal and social skills, giving them the ability to adapt to situations they would normally encounter in day to day activities and settings.
By partnering with MQ, Hull Services will expand their online brand and presence through website redesigns and improving the online user experience. Hull’s community outreach programs will have a more focused online presence while educational forums and research symposiums will reach a broader audience with MQ taking over video production and website management.
In June 2014, Hull Services hosted the NMT Symposium in Banff, Alberta, with over 600 international delegates attending to learn from renowned psychologist Dr. Bruce D. Perry about the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT). MQ provided and designed the event registration platform and provided technical support to the attending delegates. The Symposium was a huge success and Hull Services hopes to host it again in 2015. As the only Canadian agency providing this state-of-the-art therapy, Hull Services is at the forefront of innovation in the mental health sector and with the new technology solutions provided by MQ, they hope to gain more attention to NMT and its successes.
