Happy Fifth Birthday to MindMate

//Happy Fifth Birthday to MindMate

On Thursday 13 June, MindMate, a website that provides mental health and emotional wellbeing advice and information for children and young people across Leeds, celebrated its fifth birthday.

Tim Ryley, Chief Executive at NHS Leeds CCG would like to thank all the organisations who work with children and young people, including staff from the CCG, Leeds City Council, Leeds Community Healthcare NHS Trust, local voluntary and charitable organisations who’ve contributed to the success of MindMate.

Children and young people from Leeds have been instrumental to the success of the website, which has been co-produced with them and they have played a key role in raising awareness of MindMate.

Since its launch, MindMate has expanded to include dedicated young people ambassadors, the establishment of a MindMate school support and training programme, and the setting up of a dedicated single referral point for healthcare professionals and service users.

Looking ahead the Future in Mind: Leeds partnership has a number of key ambitions to continue improving mental health and wellbeing of children and young people across the city.

This will include the delivery of the city-centre young person’s social, emotional and mental health service.

The partnership is also looking to develop and implement a mental health crisis provision, and to continue to enhance and support the response to trauma for children and young people in Leeds.
