AXA Health extends its network for diagnosis and treatment
AXA Health has extended its network of providers supporting Children and Young Persons Mental Health to include a remote service offered by Onebright Efficacy, one of the UK’s leading mental healthcare providers. The emotional health and wellbeing of children is as important as their physical health. From cognitive behavioural therapists and counsellors to clinical psychologists and psychiatrists, Onebright Efficacy brings a comprehensive range of clinicians available to treat children and young people remotely. This is great news for AXA Health customers with family members on their plan. Following a GP referral, where appropriate, each will gain fast access to available remote psychological assessment and talking therapies.*
These evidence-based therapies allow their issues to be safely discussed. Parents are encouraged to be a positive and proactive part of the treatment process, by being involved at the assessment, where the clinician will understand the current issues and explain the recommended treatment.
Shamira Graham, Director of Clinical Solutions, Onebright Efficacy adds “Given the rise in children’s mental health problems, we are delighted to be able to offer this service to AXA Health members. We are proud to have developed an accessible service that reflects the latest research in psychological therapy and parental involvement. The quality of the service is closely governed ensuring that treatment is safe, client centred and effective. We work hard to ensure that each child receives the very best quality of treatment delivering real results.”
The importance of accessible support is a view shared by Katrina Herren, Head of Clinical Operations at AXA Health following the successful pilot
“When your child is struggling with their health, we know our members want rapid access to experienced clinicians. National access to support for children’s mental health is very difficult. This remote service has offered quick access to assessment and therapy, and has been very much welcomed by parents, with clinical outcomes highly comparable to face to face therapy.”
AXA Health and Onebright Efficacy closely monitored both the therapy and service experience – each scoring a quality score above 9 out of 10 during the successful pilot period prior to its now roll out. One parent shared their experience “The quality of the therapy is high; it’s made a real difference to my daughter and we can finally see light at the end of the tunnel.”
