Leeds IAPT

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. However, some professional help may be needed and Leeds IAPT can provide this.

Leeds IAPT provide psychological treatments, sometimes called talking treatments, to help people who are stressed, experiencing low mood (depressed) or are very nervous (anxious).

Treatments are delivered across a number of locations in the city and can take place as part of a group, online, or on a one to one basis. To access treatment patients can self refer to the service, this can be done via the or by telephone (0113 843 4388).  Once an assessment has been completed our clinicians will then speak to patients about treatment options.

IAPT is available to people who are aged 17 or above and registered with a Leeds GP.

Leeds IAPT can help you change the way that you think and feel.
