Mental Health Support Services in Leeds
Mental Health Support Services - Time to Talk Flyer 2018
Time to talk is a voluntary listening service organised by churches and community groups in east Leeds and managed by the Catholic Diocese of Leeds. It is not a clinical talking therapy but an opportunity to talk confidentially about things that are troubling you.
Time to Talk listeners are trained by Samaritans. They will not judge you. They will not advise you. They will respect you confidence. It is not an NHS service but your doctor might recommend you talking to our listeners as you wait for clinical treatment for your mental health condition or to help you emotionally at your time of need.
Bookable appointments will be held at Colton Mill Medical Centre starting Friday 30th November 2018. Please speak to your GP, Pharmacists or Reception to book into one of these Friday morning sessions.

Our Carers Champion: Amy
What is a Carer Champion and what do I do?
A Carer Champion is a member of staff who supports carers and acts as a key contact for carer information. Their aim is to improve Carers quality of life by promoting carers own health and well being as well as, recognising and valuing the contribution that carers make. They will be looking at new ways to improve the services that the practice offers, to meet the health needs of our carers.
What is a Carer and what do they do?
A carer is someone of any age who provides unpaid support to family or friends who could not manage without their help, due to illness, disability, mental health issues or a Substance misuse problem. Many people do not recognise themselves as a ‘carer’ and this can lead to them missing out on vital support available to them, so please make us aware if you are…
Who can help me?
The best place to start is Carers Leeds , who provides a free advice, information and support service on behalf of Leeds City Council.
If you want to talk things over, their carers support workers can offer support by listening to you. If you want to know about the services available to you, or what you may be entitled to receive, they can guide you in the right direction. If you don’t know where to turn, they can offer advice to help you make the right choices for you. All you need to do is ask at reception for a Yellow Card and we can arrange for Carers Leeds to contact you via your own preference...
