The Leeds Mental Health Strategy 2020-2025 (Updated 2022) is a strategy for people of all ages, laying out how the city plans to address mental health needs and promote good mental health among the people of Leeds.
The strategy has eight priorities, which focus on the areas people said are most important to them. The 2022 update adds three workstreams, the first of which focuses on COVID-19 recovery, as the pandemic has had a negative effect on mental health and wellbeing for many people.
The strategy has five outcomes – where we want to get to by 2025. These are:
- People of all ages and communities will be comfortable talking about their mental health and wellbeing.
- People will be part of mentally healthy, safe and supportive families, workplaces and communities.
- People’s quality of life will be improved by timely access to appropriate mental health information, support and services.
- People will be actively involved in their mental health and their care.
- People with long term mental health conditions will live longer and lead fulfilling, healthy lives.

We are running a yearly survey with the people of Leeds, a check-in on how people are feeling, and a check on how close we are to achieving these five outcomes. For more information and to take part, visit the How Are You Doing, Leeds survey page.
