Brentford FC CST Partners With NHS West London to Deliver Advantage Mentoring Programme
Advantage is a free one-to-one wellbeing mentoring programme for 14-21 year olds, delivered by the Trust to help young people make the most of their opportunities.
The Trust has partnered with NHS West London and Advantage Mentoring to deliver a new mentoring programme for local young people from October.
The programme has been designed by senior NHS strategists and Trust staff to increase access to mental health support in partnership with CAMHS and CARMHS (community and recovery Mental health services) and help tackle waiting times and reduce Health Inequalities by providing weekly 1-2-1 mentoring support for young people aged 14-21 with mild-moderate mental health and emotional wellbeing support needs, that are unable to access direct CAMHS support.
Participants will receive weekly 1-2-1 mentoring sessions with qualified staff at the Trust with expertise in mental health, youth work and mentoring.
Sessions support young people by using a goals-based approach with an aim to improve life opportunities and overall wellbeing.
Chris Barrett, Education Manager at Brentford FC CST, said: “We are delighted to add Advantage Mentoring to our portfolio of programmes for our local communities and look forward to engaging with a new cohort of young people, providing a safe space and relaxed environment to support them move forward more positively.”
The programme will commence with the Trust from October this year. For more information about how to make a referral for a young person, please contact Chris Barrett: email@example.com
