Mental health support
Within Forward Leeds there is a specialist team made up of psychiatrists, psychologists, nurse specialists, therapists, non-medical prescribers, and associate practitioners.
The team’s role within Forward Leeds is to provide specialist assessment and interventions for individuals with alcohol and/or drug problems, alongside significant mental health concerns. They are based across the three main Forward Leeds hubs in Armley, Kirkgate in the city centre and Seacroft, as well as in the hospitals in Leeds.
They offer a variety of interventions, such as:
- Mental health assessments and diagnosis
- Psychological therapies & interventions
- Parenting assessment & parenting skills
- Specialist prescribing
If you are experiencing poor mental health we can signpost for additional support.
