Already using services?

Most young people accessing support in Leeds tell us that it’s helpful. As part of your sessions you should be able to discuss how this is going, say if you don’t like something and agree shared goals. If you can’t do that sometimes it’s easier to write it down or ask someone to say it for you.

You might even want to think about trying something different. Click here for more information on services in Leeds
