A senior councillor at the centre of plans to close a crisis centre for people with mental health problems in Leeds has said that ‘tough and painful decisions’ need to be taken by the authority.

In a statement, councillor Lucinda Yeadon, executive board member with responsibility for adult social care, said that in other parts of the country the work of Leeds Crisis Centre was normally provided by the NHS.

She said that the largest number of referrals to the Leeds Crisis Centre come from the postcodes closest to where it is based; LS6, LS16, LS27 and LS11 and that many parts of Leeds receive no service from the centre, where people’s needs are met through other NHS services.

    thanks for mentioning our campaign. The Crisis Centre is well used by family and unpaid carers as you can imagine so losing it will be a blow to people struggling to cope with the stress and emotional impact of caring. http://saveleedscrisiscentre.wordpress.com/
