For young people

These webpages are good places to find out more about mental health and include self help suggestions you might find useful if you are waiting for a CAMHS appointment.



Mindmate is a Leeds based website about mental health and emotional welbeing. It is for young people. It has information about local services and how to access them, self help and advice as well as personal accounts by young people. 

A CAMHS clinican is on the professionals panel that reviews the content on the site.


Young Minds is a national mental health charity. It provides up to date information about memtal health written for young people. It also campaigns to raise awareness.

Leeds CAMHS can’t control the content of external websites but we only include links to sites that are run by organisations that we trust
