LGBTQ+ mental health self-advocacy sessions starting this month

This February, the Leeds LGBTQ+ Health Inclusion Project is running six sessions on self-advocacy for LGBTQ+ people who also have mental health difficulties. The sessions will be held at Dial House in Halton. They aim to help you:

  • Learn skills to help you speak up about your rights
  • Help you to get involved in the health services you use

The course will run for six weeks, with one session per week. Each session is from 2pm to 4pm. They will run on these dates:

  • Friday 7th February
  • Friday 14th February
  • Friday 21st February
  • Friday 28th February
  • Friday 6th March
  • Friday 13th March

They will be at Dial House, run by the Leeds Survivor-Led Crisis Service (LSLCS). You can find it at this address:

Dial House
12 Chapel Street
Halton

The 40 and 163 bus services stop right outside and opposite Dial House. There is limited parking nearby.
