"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.

Online + Telephone Reachout Groups

If you live in Kent and are looking for some support for your mental and emotional wellbeing, Mental Health Resource provide a free service, called Reachout. Last year alone we provided support to 62 people across West Kent through these community groups.

Our trained and supportive staff deliver weekly online and telephone support groups during this period of lockdown to offer 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. Our groups are built on shared personal experience and empathy, focusing on your strengths with the goal of achieving wellbeing and recovery.

When do the groups run?

    We are currently able to offer a face to face meetings for our Paddock Wood group once a month, with a view to resuming all groups face to face in the near future.

    *During Lockdown there is a slight change to our group timetables. Please see the table below for further details.
