Need a Bit of Professional Help? You Can Refer Yourself!
If you are registered with a Leeds GP, experiencing mild to moderate anxiety, stress, panic or depression and not already receiving NHS mental health services, IAPT is available to people 17 years of age and over and you can refer yourself by clicking here IAPT Self Referral
Leeds IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) is a group of mental health care providers from the NHS and third sector comprising of Leeds Community Healthcare NHS Trust, Community Links, Northpoint Wellbeing and Touchstone.
Depression, anxiety or any kind of emotional stress are part of everyday life and can be a real challenge. Sometimes people are able to deal with this by themselves or with the help of family and friends by making simple changes. However, some professional help may be needed and Leeds IAPT can provide this. You don’t need to see your GP to be referred to this service.
IAPT is NOT a crisis or urgent response service. If you feel you need help in a crisis/urgent response situation, please either contact your GP, dial NHS 111, ring Samaritans on 116 123 or you can get help and advice on the Mindwell website.
