About Chapter

Chapter is dedicated to improving the lives of people experiencing mental ill-health

Chapter promotes the mental health and wellbeing of individuals, communities and workplaces through the provision of education and training services that adopt preventative and/or therapeutic approaches.

We pride ourselves on the tailored local approach of our services. We work closely with individuals and communities, taking time to understand their needs, recognising their strengths, and supporting them to engage in their local community.

Chapter assists people who, because of their mental illness, need help in regaining confidence, accessing training and employment, and moving towards fulfilling their life goals.

Set up in 1991 as a result of collaboration between people experiencing mental ill-health and health professionals, Chapter is now a registered charity and still maintains its collaborative ethos.

We provide direct support to over 300 people living with Mental Illness including Serious Mental Illness (SMI) every year, as well as supporting community groups to improve wellbeing.

We are particularly proud  of our  RE:SET programme, an ambitious project to support people who are at risk of mental illness to develop coping strategies and self-help techniques to help them to stay well.

We deliver a range of tailored and accredited mental health workshops and courses to individuals, groups and organisation seeking to improve their knowledge and understanding of mental health and wellbeing.
