We believe young people should have a say in how the services they use to look after and treat their mental health are run. That’s exactly what awareness raising and campaigns group OASIS do.
Whether it’s taking on the stigma attached to mental health, improving signposting to relevant services or making a positive change to services that already exist to help young people, OASIS are up to the challenge! Read the OASIS group's Our Voice Matters Manifesto.
The group meets every Thursday 5pm-7pm at Horizon college and discuss campaign ideas, awareness posters and put together their own Mental Health First Aid Kit.
The group also consulted with Chilypep and participated in he creation of the Open Up Barnsley Directory

The films and posters are about young people's rights in healthcare; about confidentiality, independence and feedback. To watch the films go to the NHS Youth Forum's Twitter page an/or Facebook page you can share them online using the hashtag #yourhealthinyourhands.
