The Leeson Centre was one of several PSS Wellbeing Centres in South Liverpool and Liverpool City Centre. It provided recovery-focused mental health support to people experiencing the challenges of living with anxiety, depression and other forms of emotional distress.*

PSS believe that everyone is creative and that creativity can play a powerful role in a person’s mental health and wellbeing; individuals are invited to attend craft courses to learn new techniques, strategies and skills with support from others.

* The Leeson Centre sadly closed in 2017 due to funding cuts.
