Mental Wealth Academy

The Mental Wealth Academy is an innovative new project supporting 18-25 year olds affected by life-changing events, who are falling through gaps created by transition pathways from CAMHS to Adult Mental Health services. Furthermore, as part of this innovative project, families will be supported to enable them to work with their children and young people to recover from mental health issues following a life changing event. The Mental Wealth Academy model will include partners Ark T, Oxfordshire MIND, Oxfordshire Youth, SOFEA and BYHP and the work will be characterised by an aspirational, co-productive approach with the aim of reducing health inequalities, increasing resilience and improving life chances. The project will expand the third sector’s reach and impact through a proactive and preventative programme consisting of training, peer mentorship and direct intervention.

What the young people say:

“Thank you for providing me with a space in which I felt able to express my feelings and be myself”- BHYP Young Person 

‘Jenny helped me because she is a nice person and I can talk to her about anything.’ – Ark T Young Person

What the stakeholders are saying:

I have been incredibly impressed by the work that RAW have done with X and how much he has improved as a result of this. X is much more confident & has also said that he is enjoying learning new skills. He is attending a day at a specialist school today, which I think he may have struggled to do before going to RAW.” – CAMHs Psychologist 

The work seemed to really meet young person’s needs in providing a time limited and supportive connection but not for too long which may have made separation difficult. I think Jenny was very good at creating the right relationship with the young person in a positive way.- Getting Help referrer for Ark-T
