With nearly 20 years experience working to empower young people and support them to influence change, Chilypep is well placed to help other organisations better understand what meaningful participation and involvement looks like and support them to embed young people’s participation into their work, through our bespoke training and consultancy packages.

We have extensive experience supporting young people’s mental health and emotional wellbeing, and helping young people to influence mental health support and services. Our mental health training packages bring this experience to life through interactive, youth inspired content. We offer a range of mental health training courses, including Youth & Adult Mental Health First Aid courses, Applied Suicide Interventions Skills Training (ASIST), SafeTALK and bespoke training to suit your needs.

Our training can be delivered to schools, councils, charities, businesses, organisations and individuals. We are flexible and creative in our training design and delivery and are happy to bespoke training to meet your needs and wants.

We are currently funded to deliver a range of Mental Health First Aid and suicide prevention courses across Barnsley, funded by the CCG and BMBC as part of Future in Mind and Barnsley’s suicide prevention strategy.

"'Excellent 2 day course! Best course I've done in 5 ½ years of working here. Presentations were very open and shared personal experiences which encouraged everyone to share & collaborate honestly! Very valuable!!'"

"'Can I just say a massive thank you for arranging for me to go onto the course today. I absolutely loved it, this course should be compulsory. It blows my mind that we are made to do an annual update on physical first aid but not anything to do with mental health.'"
