Wellbeing, Mental Health support for young people (CAMHS)
Here at Synolos, we have Katie, our CAMHS Community In-Reach Worker who is able to offer an 8-week Creative Therapeutic Mentoring Programme to young people aged 11-18.
The programme is not designed to provide therapy, but to listen to young people, offer support and work through any issues together.
Each young person will have their own ‘Emotional Wellbeing Toolkit’ and together we will work through week by week to understand ourselves a little bit more.
Once you have made a referral you will be asked to come in for a visit. If you feel you would benefit from support we would complete an assessment, where we talk through what you are struggling with and set some goals.
The programme consists of 8 one-hour sessions. These sessions are personalised to the young person and include a variety of different activities.

The exception being Oxfordshire Youth who provide generic training to other organisations and professionals on mental health.
