Mental Health Support Services in Leeds 

Mental Health Services are free on the NHS, but in some cases you’ll need a referral from your GP to access them. There are some mental health services that allow people to refer themselves.

This most commonly includes services for drug problems and alcohol problem, as well as psychological therapies (IAPT) Services (cognitive behavioural therapy CBT for common problems like stress, anxiety, depression, OCD and phobias)

If your mental health difficulty is related to stress at work, you can ask you employer what occupational health services are available to you. Check out the Time to Change website, which has a section dedicated to employers.

Some mental health problems can be managed without the help of a GP. There are a variety of materials available and local organisations offering help.

You can also try the mood assessment quiz, which is designed to recommend resources to help you better understand how you feel.
