"Reachout gives me a lot of confidence & signposts organisations I never knew existed. It is enlightening, encouraging & the group is my light at the end of a tunnel." Reachout client, 2020. 

What is Reachout?

Reachout is a free service for adults living in Kent, who are looking for some support for their mental and emotional wellbeing. 

Our trained and supportive staff deliver weekly face to face 'walk & talk' support groups, as well as online & telephone groups to give you a space to receive some caring and non-judgemental support. 

By joining, you can find out what has helped others and have a safe space to talk about things you might not usually share with friends or family. 

How can Reachout help me?

Our groups are built on shared personal experience and empathy, focusing on your strengths with the goal of achieving wellbeing and recovery. Why not take a look at some case studies to find out how these groups have supported people in the past.

During the groups, are staff are able to:

  • Advise clients of the current Covid19 updates.
  • Signpost to 24/7 mental health helplines.
  • Discuss specific needs such as food, cleaning, money, work, medication, health, commitments, connectivity, new daily routines, exercise, nature, entertainment and relaxation, and anything else that they wish to discuss.  
  • Ensure clients are connected to their GP surgery and signposted to appropriate agencies.

    EK 360 logo

    Our Reachout projects are supported by EK 360, (previously known as Engaging Kent) who were commissioned in 2018 to facilitate a co-production process to develop a new model to ensure the voice of mental health service users is heard in the right way, by the right people to generate change within Kent.

    To find out more about this process, you can download their 'Co-production for the mental health community in Kent' document.
