"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.

Reachout Groups (online, telephone & 'walk & talk').

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 ReachoutOur trained and supportive staff deliver weekly online, telephone & 'walk & talk' support groups to offer you a space to receive some caring and non-judgemental support.
