The Leeds Personality Disorder Managed Clinical Network is a city-wide multi-agency and multidisciplinary service and team members work across Yorkshire and Humberside. The service has an administrative base at The Sugar Refinery and can be contacted on 0113 85 57950.
We believe that people who use personality disorder services are experts by experience, so your involvement is vital to improve services. There are lots of ways for you to give feedback about your experiences with the Network, and to get involved in developing and improving our services.

Personalities in Action is the service user involvement group for Leeds Personality Disorder Managed Clinical Network. It is a friendly group that meets on the third Tuesday of every month at Leeds Civic Hall.
Members of the group all have lived experience of personality disorder and have used mental health services provided by our Trust.
The group is informal and friendly and offers the opportunity to:
ensure service users have a voice within our network
share views, opinions and feedback on both our services and our involvement opportunities
increase confidence and self-esteem
stay connected with other people who understand personality disorder and who may have had similar experiences
empower new service users to feel part of a supportive community
The Personality Disorder Managed Clinical Network recognise that young people may wish to get involved in different ways, and with their own peer group. We are now working with more young adults aged 18-25 and ran an event in June 2018 specifically for younger adults who are using or who have used the Network. You can download the feedback from the event for more information.
If you are 18-25, have lived experience of personality disorder and would like to get involved, please contact Ruth Sutherland on 0113 8557950 or email Pdinvolvement.firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
