The Mental Wealth Academy is an innovative new project supporting 18-25 year olds, who are falling through gaps created by transition pathways from CAMHS to Adult Mental Health services. As part of this innovative project, families will be supported to enable them to work with their children and young people to recover from mild – moderate mental health issues. 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.
Please click on the link below to refer a young person (18-25) for support from the Mental Wealth Academy. Please note that in response to COVID-19 and the pressures on young people (lockdown induced anxieties/stress etc.) From June 1st – 31st November 2020, we have released the capacity for the team to be able work with a young people (16-25). We will continually review this expansion of service and therefore may not be able to offer this change to our service delivery indefinitely.
