About MindMate

MindMate Leeds is the name for all the different ways children and young people in the city can get support with their mental health and wellbeing.

We’re here for your mental health.

What is the MindMate website?

The MindMate website is an information hub for Leeds, and includes:

  • free and accredited services available in the city
  • advice and information on a range of mental health issues
  • stories and experiences of young people and their mental health.
  • guidance for self-care and where necessary, self-referral

While MindMate is focused on the needs of young people, it’s also a valuable resource for professionals, as well as parents and carers. In fact, the service was co-designed by young people, professionals and carers, and they still have a say in every aspect of MindMate.
