We are a city-wide, multi-agency and multidisciplinary service that aims to work effectively with people who are experiencing complex emotional needs and interpersonal difficulties.
We see people who may, as a result of complex trauma and adverse life experiences, have developed ways of coping and surviving that can cause them harm and distress, and we provide a range of different services to meet the needs of people at different stages of their personal development.
Young Adults Pathway - A service for young adults aged 18-25 in Leeds with complex emotional needs or with a diagnosis of personality disorder.
Care coordination of over 25s - A service for adults aged over 25 with complex emotional needs or a diagnosis of personality disorder who are at risk of long-term hospital admission, or who are being discharged from (or within) long-term hospital placements.
Journey Programme - The Journey programme helps people to develop a better understanding of what they do in their daily lives, and how their life experiences might affect this. It helps people to take part in purposeful activity and gives people a chance to learn about themselves and others in a different way. The programme is led by our occupational therapists.
Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT Skills) - These groups are designed to help people learn new skills to help them cope when they feel suicidal or want to use self-harming or life-threatening behaviours to manage distress.
