We appreciate that many people will be feeling more anxious at the current time due to Corona Virus/Covid -19. The Leeds Mental Wellbeing service (LMWS) are experiencing high demand for services and it might take longer than usual for us to return your calls, emails or review your case.
In line with government advice we have implemented a number of changes with immediate effect:
We will no longer be running our large group sessions. We will endeavour to contact all clients to inform them of these changes, if you are however unsure whether your session is running please call the service or your therapist.
We will deliver appointments wherever possible by phone/online means rather than face to face
If you have a face to face appointment with us, and you have a temperature of over 37.8 or a persistent cough please notify us and do not attend your appointment.
To support those who are feeling anxious or stressed about Corona virus or self-isolation there is lots of useful information and strategies for coping and looking after your mental wellbeing at the Mindwell website https://www.mindwell-leeds.org.uk/home/information-on-coronavirus.
We thank you for using these resources to self-manage your anxiety in the first instance so that we can continue to deliver a service.
