A digital place for people who access services, carers, staff and partner agencies, to share ideas around care co-ordination & care planning in mental health


Fiona Venner announces extra opening hours for Dial House in Leeds:

I am delighted to inform you that from Wednesday 1st April, thanks to increased NHS funding, Dial House will be open on Wednesday nights from 6pm to 2am as well as Friday to Monday nights.

Dial hse

Dial House is our flagship service, founded in 1999, and continues to provide a place of sanctuary and support to people in acute distress which is an alternative to psychiatric hospitalisation and statutory services.

Our second crisis house, Dial House @ Touchstone, opened in October 2013 to provide crisis support on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6-11pm for people from BME groups, who did not traditionally access Dial House.

From 1st April, we will have a house open every night of the year, which was the vision of our founders, a group of campaigning mental health service users, who worked tirelessly to bring the organisation into existence in the 1990s.

We also have the Connect helpline, open every night of the year from 6-10.30pm and a programme of group work. From April 2015, this will comprise a social and support group, two Lesbian Gay, Bisexual and Transgender groups, a specific Transgender group and a Coping with Crisis group.

If you would like leaflets about any or all of our services, please email michelle.noad@lslcs.org.uk or telephone 0113 260 9328.
