Association of Mental Health Providers

Quick links


Volition is an alliance of voluntary sector organisations that either provide mental health services for or work with people who have mental health needs. We have over 80 members from all areas of the voluntary sector providing services to people in Leeds. Members include agencies that directly provide mental health services as well as those who have an interest in mental health.

Ensuring equality of access is at the heart of what we do. We are committed to improving participation of smaller member organisations, many of whom work with disadvantaged communities.

Volition exists to:

  • promote the contribution of the voluntary sector in strategic planning and development of services
  • encourage co-operation and partnership between agencies and across sectors
  • inform and resource voluntary sector organisations to enable them to better meet the mental health needs of the people using their services
