Our Barnsley Young Commissioners have a say in how the services young people use to look after and treat their mental health are run. We facilitate 2 groups, Escape and Sanctuary, who meet fortnightly, and are made up of young people aged 11-25 with lived experience of mental ill health or have a passion for mental health and improving support and services for others. Whether it’s tackling mental health stigma, improving signposting to relevant services or making a positive change to services that already exist to help young people, Barnsley Young Commissioners are up to the challenge!

How you can join?

Young Commissioners are a closed group but if you are interested in becoming a Young Commissioner look out for our recruitment info on our socials or contact us to let us know. All new recruits receive a range of training. If you’d like to get involved with the group, you can contact project worker Chantelle by email at info@chilypep.org.uk
