Life for students at college can be stressful and challenging at times, particularly for new students. That’s why we’re working to train and facilitate young people as peer mentors.
Through our CHIL (changing, helping and influencing lives) peer mentor group we’re training young people to provide one to one support for those who might be struggling to cope or just need someone to talk to.
Chilypep works in Barnsley College to deliver a 10-week course for the CHIL group who will then be fully trained as peer mentors to support other young people with their emotional wellbeing.
We work to help students through one to one mentoring and also group activities that aim to protect and promote emotional wellbeing, and give students the opportunity to talk openly about mental health.
