Your feedback is needed on Mental Health Services in Leeds


NHS Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is currently engaging with patients, health and care professionals, providers, voluntary sector and the wider public about primary care mental health service in Leeds. Primary care mental health services are services usually provided through the GP practice to people with mild to moderate mental health problems. You might be referred into primary care mental health services if you are feeling low, vulnerable or anxious.

 In Leeds there are three different primary care mental health services available:

  • Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT), also known as talking therapies, provide psychological support for people with common mental health problems, such as depression and anxiety disorders. 
  • Primary Care Mental Health Liaison Service for people whose needs cannot be met by the IAPT service.
  • There is also some support available to women in the perinatal period from conception to one year of birth.

Once the current contracts come to an end in September 2019, NHS Leeds CCG intends to commission a single primary care mental health service for Leeds. Therefore, we are asking anyone with an interest in primary care mental health services to help shape the new the new citywide service model by taking part in our survey www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/MHprimarycareservices/   

 The closing date for the survey is 30 September 2018.
