16 to 18

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.

Up to your 18th birthday (or if you are a parent of a young person aged 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.

If you are aged 18 or over, there is alternative help available. If you feel you are in need of urgent care or treatment for a mental health crisis, you can call the adult Single Point of Access (SPA) on 0300 300 1485 (open 24/7, every day).
