The Leeds Mental Health Recovery Service
Supporting people to stay in control and live their life the way they choose
For many people living with mental health needs, recovery is all about staying in control. In Leeds, we take a holistic approach and help people with all aspects of their life. We can provide care and support in a variety of ways such as practical help with housing needs, finding things to do during the day or taking up activities like walking, cooking or reading.
These pages (see 'related pages' for the different types of service available) will tell you about the services that are available for adults with mental health needs, and give you information on how to contact them.
“I wouldn’t have been able to cope without them” - Peter
By working closely with individuals, we can make sure they get the support needed to help their recovery. We want everyone to have a fulfilling life, be able to achieve their goals and to live somewhere they feel safe. All of our services are accessible to all groups irrespective of gender, sexuality, disability, ethnic origin or religious beliefs.
There are many ways we can support people in Leeds:
- We work with people to manage their mental health, develop housing-related practical skills, build support networks and even bid for independent housing
- We work together with other health providers and the voluntary sector to assess, plan and review care and support needs
- We want to involve the people who use our services in the planning and delivery of care and support. For example, anyone can join the User-Involvement Committee which meets once a month, or attend meetings within the council teams to help us in our day-to-day work by giving feedback on the quality of the service.
