Lucy and Katie spoke about the mental health charity and the services, advice and support that they give in the community. They offer counselling, supported housing, Well-being activities and groups, workshops, training and more. Some of the other wonderful work that they do is Mental Health for schools – “Working to equip teachers with knowledge and skills to support mental health, and to increase the understanding that young people have of mental health and how to look after it”.
We as a women’s organisation were particular interested to find out what support they give to young women with babies and children. We were delighted to find out that West Kent Mind offer a Mums Support group these are based in Sevenoaks, Tonbridge and East Malling. “Offering mums a space which is non-judgemental, friendly and confidential. A safe place to share experiences and feelings with other mums, which may include stress, isolation and post natal depression”. A creche is provided which is fantastic!
