Starting in October, Live Well Leeds are to hold a monthly session for one-to-one appointments around mental health at the Lovell Autism Hub. The sessions are for autistic adults in Leeds who are struggling with their mental health and need to talk to someone. Live Well Leeds’ Welcome Café is one of several they run every month at different venues throughout Leeds.

At each Welcome Café, a member of Live Well Leeds staff can meet with you to:

  • Signpost you to any relevant services you need
  • Discuss access to specialist interventions – including courses, advice, health and wellbeing activities, healthy lifestyles, reducing isolation and outdoor activities
  • Talk to you about peer support and volunteering opportunities, and their befriending service for both group and one-to-one support

When are the sessions?

The sessions at the AIM Autism Hub are on the first Tuesday of every month from 4pm to 7pm. Here is a list of dates up until the end of this year:

  • Tuesday 1st October
