About MindMate

MindMate is a Leeds-based website for young people, their families and the professionals who support them. We’re here to help you explore emotional wellbeing and mental health issues and offer information about where support is available.

Please note, the website is not designed to diagnose emotional problems or mental health conditions and we cannot respond to enquiries from individuals relating to their health. Get urgent help.

Working with young people

Children and young people in Leeds have helped create and develop the MindMate site every step of the way. Our involvement panel approve the content on each page, test the games, check the web links and help us create new content. If you are 14-24 years you can get involved in MindMate.

Working with parents and carers

Parents and carers in Leeds have helped create the content on the parent carer pages. If you are a parent and want to get more involved please email us mindmate@nhs.net, we’d love to hear from you.

Working with professionals

We’ve created this website alongside professionals including the NHS Clinical Commissioning Group in Leeds and other key partners: Leeds City Council, Leeds Community Healthcare NHS Trust, GPs, Forward Leeds, YoungMinds, Common Room and The Market Place.  Meet the current MindMate team.

Our professional approval panel check all content and links on the MindMate site. We want to make sure the information reflects how we work in Leeds and is clinically safe for children, young people and families.

MindMate is part of the Future in Mind:Leeds Strategy – a plan for Leeds explaining how people will work together to improve children and young people’s emotional and mental health.

Thanks and we hope MindMate is helpful to you.
