What we do

Leeds Mental Wellbeing Service (LMWS) is a partnership of organisations working to support the emotional wellbeing of the people of Leeds. We provide support and psychological therapies for common mental health problems such as anxiety and depression.

We offer a range of support via your GP, other health professionals or self-referral. The service gives access to a number of evidence-based psychological interventions for specific difficulties, including group-based and 1:1 therapies, classes, one-off sessions and online support.

  • guided online self-help
  • stress and mood management groups and classes
  • cognitive behavioural therapy
  • interpersonal psychotherapy
  • counselling for depression
  • eye movement desensitisation reprogramming (EMDR)

“I was referred to LMWS by my GP … I felt listened to and respected by my therapist. I was able to talk about issues which I had not previously spoken about with anyone. I was offered new perspectives and given reassurance in myself. I am in a whole different place now, so thank you”.
