*Update* This has been a very popular event and only a few spaces are still available, pre-booking is essential!

You’re invited to a special Forum Central session, delivered in partnership with Young Lives Leeds, themed around the new Mental Health Strategy being developed for Leeds.

Please download a Summary Document for your information to show where the strategy work has got to so far.

The vision for this all-ages Strategy is that Leeds will be a Mentally Healthy City for Everyone.

The third sector are key to achieving this, so please join us for an important opportunity to be able to map what is already available to support children, young people and adults of all ages’ mental health, and shape what priorities should be going forward.

Come along to hear from Kashif Ahmed (Lead Mental Health Commissioner Leeds CCG) and Sarah Erskine (Health Improvement Principal, about the strategy and have your say.

There will be a workshop as part of the session, so please come ready to discuss:

  • The proposed passions and priorities and if there are any gaps.
  • Discuss what actions we can take collectively, and in communities, to make the vision of Leeds being a Mentally Healthy City come true
