"I attend Reachout because I know I will not be shamed for what I'm going through. Reachout has made me feel less alone and more connected to others. I find it helps me because I am able to get back out into the community". 

What is Reachout?

Mental Health Resource Reachout

Reachout is a free service for adults living in West Kent (currently Edenbridge, Southborough and Paddock Wood), who are looking for some support for their mental and emotional wellbeing.

Our trained and experienced staff deliver these fortnightly groups, to give you a space to receive some caring and non-judgemental support. 

Last year, Reachout provided 40 people  with the opportunity for social connections where clients can simply enjoy simply being themselves and meeting others.

What we offer:

  1. Peer Connections: Connect with like-minded individuals within Southborough, Paddock Wood and Edenbridge, where shared experiences and finding out what has helped others can lead to a sense of being part of a supportive community.
  2. A safe space: Have a safe space to talk about things you might not usually share with friends or family.
  3. Wellbeing activities: Take part in discussions on wellbeing, singing with instruments & gentle movement, relaxation exercises, quizzes & games, and creative activities.
  4. Tailored support: Our experienced staff help facilitate friendly conversations and support around relevant and useful themes.
  5. Signposting to other organisations: During groups, staff are also able to signpost you to 24/7 mental health helplines and ensure you are connected to your GP surgery / other appropriate agencies.

    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.
