The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

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

Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust’s Single Point of Access (SPA) Team provides an access point for referrals by health care professionals to specialist mental health services in Leeds.  They are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Further details about the SPA can be found on the Urgent Referrals page of the Trust’s website.

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
