We provide a range of services in Leeds, Kirklees, Wakefield, Sheffield and York. Many of the people receiving services have severe and enduring mental health problems. Staff offer support in using local facilities, drop-in centres and other activities as well as working closely with other agencies including psychiatric services – often a key element in maintaining the progress that clients have made.
Mental health problems are common but nearly 9 out of 10 people who experience them say they face stigma and discrimination as a result. This can be even worse than the symptoms themselves.
We support Time to Change, which is England's biggest programme to challenge mental health stigma and discrimination.
Read these personal stories about living with depression, panic attacks or borderline personality disorder to understand how stigma can affect people living with mental health problems. Find out how conversations about mental health can help strengthen friendships, aid recovery and take the stigma out of something that affects many of us.
