Anxiety Leeds is closing

August 2022: Anxiety Leeds is closing. We would like to thank everyone who has attended, volunteered with, fundraised for, or otherwise been involved in Anxiety Leeds over the past nine years.

If you are looking for support with anxiety, you can find support at MindWell. MindWell lists all of the support services across Leeds. You can also access support via Linking Leeds.

We’re a peer support group for people suffering from anxiety and panic attacks. We help people feel better and understand that they are not alone.

What we do

We meet on a fortnightly basis, offering emotional and practical support to manage anxiety and improve our quality of life. Everyone who attends is an anxiety sufferer, including the facilitators, so everyone in the room can relate to your experiences. The atmosphere is warm, supportive and non-judgemental. Everyone is here for the same thing: to share their experiences and help each other.

You do not need to book in advance: just turn up! It is an open group with no attendance commitment. However, if you have any questions or would like us to meet you at the hospital entrance and walk in with you, you can contact us via email.

We meet on the second and fourth Monday of each month. Find out more about what our meetings are like, where they take place and when the next one is.

Why attend?

Here is what one of our attendees said about the group:

Before I attended, I felt there was little hope of getting better. The relief of sharing and talking and listening has had a huge effect on my recovery. You can be completely honest at the group.

Here is what another of our attendees said:

Walking through the door for the first time was a scary experience. However, everyone there was a lovely person and hearing other people’s stories really helped me to put my own life in perspective. I feel better about life after attending a meeting.
