Support for adults with mental health needs

How to access our services

If you already have a social worker or support worker, please speak to them first.

You can also see your GP, talk to a voluntary sector organisation directly or call Adult Social Care on 0113 222 4401 (Weekdays, 9am to 5pm, except Wednesdays when we're open from 10am). They will arrange a referral for you so someone can talk with you about your needs. If you are unable to use the telephone you can email us at feedback@leeds.gov.uk.

If you have an emergency on an evening or weekend, our Emergency Duty Team can help - please see the weekend and evening emergencies for their contact details.
