How to get involved

Every year, our work touches the lives of hundreds of women and their families in every part of Leeds.

When women and girls have better mental health and wellbeing, this helps every area of our lives including our parenting, relationships, social life, work life and ability to cope with life’s challenges day-to-day.

Feedback from women tells us that therapy helps vulnerable and marginalised women get better and stay better for longer. Joanna* is just one example:

Joanna came for nine sessions of individual therapy at which time she had major difficulties and was twice as likely as someone with ‘normal’ mental health to harm herself or others . After therapy all areas had improved and her risk measures were minimal.

“I have returned to work after a long period out of work and my confidence has grown enormously since feeling able to do that.”
