We are pleased to announce the launch of the Mental Wealth Academy – a vital new partnership offering a proactive and preventative programme of non-clinical mental health services for 18-25 year-olds across Oxfordshire. For the next six months, in response to the effects of the COVID pandemic, this service is being extended to 16-and-17-year-olds too.
The project is being delivered through an exciting partnership between Response, Oxfordshire Mind, Oxfordshire Youth, Ark-T, Banbury Young Homelessness Project (BYHP) and SOFEA, allowing a wider reach to young people and the community across Oxfordshire.
The Mental Wealth Academy project offers a 1:1 intervention programme based on cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) and solution focused therapies, which are delivered by a team of Transition Wellbeing Practitioners.
The support services include peer mentoring; dealing with anxiety and stress; education; employment; training; personal identity; physical health and body image; recognising and managing emotions; relationships and social media; steps to wellbeing, social skills and engagement; Mental Health Ambassador programme and community engagement.
Support from the project can be accessed via self-referral or a family member or mental health professional through the Response website by visiting: www.response.org.uk/MentalWealthAcademy
