We share our knowledge so that others can join us in supporting and promoting young people’s mental health.


We run a variety of training courses to give people the confidence, knowledge and skills to support young people’s mental health.

We draw on fifty years experience of supporting young people and a unique take on mental health to offer engaging, relevant and practical training.

We currently offer seven training courses. If you are looking for a broad introduction to mental health then we suggest our first programme.

  • Doing mental health differently
  • Real world resilience
  • CBT – A user’s guide
  • Working confidently with gender and sexuality
  • Mental health tools, tips and techniques
  • Working with race, culture, and difference in mental healthcare
  • Working with self harm and suicide

You can either attend one of our open courses at our offices in central Bristol or we can create a tailored version for your organisation and deliver it at your offices.

Please see below for further information about each of our training courses, including fees, dates and booking instructions.

We can also support you to establish our evidence based mental health projects in your organisation. These include Freedom, offering peer support for LGBTQ+ young people and Mind Aid for young people struggling with feelings related to stress, anxiety, low mood, or depression.

If none of the above quite meet your needs then we can create, design and deliver training bespoke to you. If you would like to explore how we can help you please contact Cat Taylor on cat@otrbristol.org.uk
