Mental Health Day Opportunities offer a service to adults who would like to improve their mental wellbeing, increase their independence and connect with their community. We help people to identify their strengths and build on these to improve their lives.
We offer a wide range of groups and activities across Leeds. We also have specialist staff who can offer opportunities to volunteer or get back into work.
We are committed to helping people build their self-confidence, raise their aspirations and celebrate their success.
Community is at the heart of our service. We work to challenge stigma and stereotyping, and to break down the barriers faced by people with mental health issues.
