Specialist Mentoring Project
This project is for young people with complex needs and their families. It focuses on holistic, preventative and sustainable support interventions, working with the family as a whole. It focuses on hard-to-reach, at-risk young people who may have special educational needs, exhibit psychological distress or mental health issues and antisocial behaviours, raising concerns around engagement (within school, home, health and/or social services) and family dynamics.
This project helps these young people to navigate their futures and overcome many of the associated short to longer term challenges and obstacles, as well as supporting parent Carers to feel better equipped to look after themselves and their families by way of providing specialist and appropriate intervention.
Funded by Richmond Parish Lands Charity and the Hampton Fund.
Peer Support Project
Crossroads Care offers tailored individual support for Carers and/or the people they care for who are experiencing mental health conditions.
We assess, develop and deliver plans of support to Carers that will optimise their ability to continue caring whilst maintaining their own health and well-being.
We work closely with the Community Mental Health Transformation Programme (CMHTP),
the Richmond Mind Senior Carer Peer Support Development Lead, alongside South West London & St George’s Mental Health NHS Trust (SWLSTG) as part of the Carers HUB. The aims of the project are to improve pathways and coordinated services for Carers experiencing mental health issues, often as a direct result of caring.
This new model of care has been developed to help remove barriers between primary and secondary care, promoting better integration between services. The model aims to reduce waiting times and the number of people going into crisis, as well as addressing inequalities and supporting transitions as well as offering holistic/personalised care and support to patients and their Carers.
