Validate is a community for people with lived experiences of personality disorder services in Leeds. You don’t have to be a service user of the Leeds PD Network to use this site though, we want it to be a welcoming environment for anyone to learn more about what support is available to them, to discuss their feelings, to get creative, and much more.

From newsletter to the internet

Validate was originally a physical newsletter where service users could contribute their artwork, their words, find out about everything that was going on in the city for personality disorder services and to get involved. The Validate Leeds website is the digital version of that newsletter, a place to foster a supportive community.

Our Approach

People with personality disorders are experts by experience. This is the philosophy that runs through everything on Validate and the Leeds network.

What to expect here

A welcoming and supportive environment that will showcase all the opportunities available for you to get involved, join a community of likeminded individuals and to help break the stigma that can surround personality disorder.
