Mental health services in Leeds

A mental health crisis or emergency can be a frightening experience but there is support available to help you - the most important thing is to reach out for help.

If you need to seek help for your mental health in a non-emergency you should speak to your GP in the first instance.

Urgent help

The Single Point of Access (SPA) Team, run by Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The team is made up of experienced members of the crisis teams who support people with acute mental health problems. They can provide advice and support over the phone and could offer a face-to-face assessment if this is required.

Contact the SPA Team on 0300 300 1485 (or if you are deaf or hard of hearing you can text 07983 323867).
What should I do if there is an immediate risk?

If you have concerns for your mental state and you feel there is an immediate and serious danger to yourself or another person:

  • call 999 immediately for an ambulance or the police
  • or you can also call 111 when you need medical advice fast but it’s not a 999 emergency
