OASIS (Opening up awareness and support and influencing services) is a Chilypep group based in Barnsley that aims to empower young people to shape mental health services.

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!

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.

If you’d like to get involved with the group, you can contact project worker Chantelle by email at or visit the Facebook page here: [Insert Horizon College logo, NHS Barnsley CCG logo, Mental Health First Aid Kit image and two images from Barnsley residential]
