Diagnosed with bi-polar affective disorder at the age of 20, I was sure my life was headed for disaster. The Hub was a place that allowed me to find my feet as a volunteer for the creative writing group and I found people I could relate to. With the Hub's support, I was able to achieve my dream of becoming a state registered Art Therapist." Chris

What is the Hub?

The Hub is our friendly vibrant wellbeing centre, located in central Tunbridge Wells and is open to all adults with emotional or mental health needs. The Hub offers a safe space to talk and various wellbeing activities, which are all completely free to access and designed to boost confidence & self–esteem. 

As well as providing 1-2-1 counselling from our trained and supportive staff, the Hub also provides wellbeing activities, which include:

  • Art groups
  • A creative writing group
  • An allotment group
  • Men's and Women's Talking groups
  • Walking groups

How can the Hub help me?

If you want some help to improve your mental health and emotional wellbeing, you can access any of our wellbeing activities or simply visit us for a chat. Our team will help you develop a tailored progress plan and we often use the 6 ways to wellbeing to promote and help people improve their mental wellbeing.

Most importantly we recognise the value of friendship and peer support. Many of our groups are led by clients or volunteers who also live with mental health conditions.

Where is the Hub?

The Hub is located at 2a Grosvenor Park, Tunbridge Wells, Kent, TN1 2BD.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, our activities take place at other venues.

Many of our groups are also taking place online or over the telephone.
