During the coronavirus outbreak, services on offer to young people are still there but they are likely to be different to normal. Use MindMate to help you find the support you need in Leeds, but make sure you check directly with the service about opening times and appointments.

If you are a young person (13-17 years) or a parent of a young person (5-17 years) you can now make an online or telephone self-referral to Leeds MindMate SPA (Single Point of Access) who will work with local services to help find the right support for you.

Make an online referral using our form or call Leeds MindMate SPA during office hours on 0300 555 0324
