Leeds MindMate SPA

MindMate Single Point of Access (SPA) is a service run by the NHS that helps children and young people in Leeds find support with their mental health. If you’re unsure how to get the support you need, you can contact the MindMate SPA (Single Point of Access), so they can help you to find the most suitable service in Leeds.

If you are under 18, or if you are a parent of someone aged 5-17, you can ask for MindMate SPA to help find support

There are lots of specialist support services that you might be referred onto, such as school or college based support or counselling at The Market Place or Kooth. Or you might be referred onto CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service) if this is the right service for you

For neurodevelopmental referrals (Autism and ADHD) you must initially seek support from within the education setting. We would recommend that you speak to the schools Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo) or college student services in the first instance. Even when difficulties are not present at school/college, they are still best placed to provide early help support. Schools within clusters commission external emotional health and wellbeing support; schools not in clusters provide this internally. Education settings can make direct referrals to MindMateSPA if an assessment is still indicated once early intervention and school support has been put in place.
