"The out of hours service is valuable local resource which means so much to the residents. From being somewhere people can discuss problems in an a relaxed and friendly environment, to having somewhere to make new friends. People come from far and wide because of everything it has to offer." (Greg Clark, MP and Mental Health Resource Patron).

Serenity Cafe case study

What is our out-of-hours service?

Our out of hours service (formally known as the 'Serenity cafe'), is a 'safe space' for those with mental health conditions in order to provide access to peer support and 1-1 support to enable people to manage their mental health. 

Our experienced staff and volunteers are on hand to help you improve your immediate wellbeing and provide a safe space for you if you are in need of support and guidance to prevent escalation. The groups provide:

  • 1:1 support
  • Group-based activities
  • Tools and techniques to manage mental health conditions
  • Refreshments 

When & where does this service take place?

These out of hours groups take place on Sundays from 2-4.30pm. 

Venue: Mental Health Resource, 2a Grosvenor Park, Tunbridge Wells, TN1 2BD.

Every other weekend, the groups will be held via the telephone. For details of how to join the group calls, please contact the Hub.

"The Serenity Café has given me a safe space to come to and this has helped me to develop my graphic design projects. I don’t have to worry that I wouldn’t be accepted – I feel safe there."
