ZOOM Social Group from Mid Kent Mind – Starting January

As Mid Kent Mind have continued to adapt our services for the ‘new normal’, we have become conscious that a number of our clients (and potential clients!) have found a transition back to accessing face-to-face support difficult. This has made us mindful that we do not want to un-necessarily limit the support which people can access – so we are delighted to share that we have self-funded a virtual social group to address this.
 
Every Monday starting in January of 2022, people will have the opportunity to join us for a ninety-minute social group session where they will have the opportunity to meet new people and explore the benefits that peer support can bring to our mental health.
 
For more details on this group, and how to access these sessions come January, please visit: https://www.maidstonemind.org/zoom-social-group/.

Low-Cost Counselling Service

Mid Kent Mind are continuing to provide a Low-Cost Counselling Service to any who is over the age of eighteen. We have a range of flexible appointments available to suit your needs, and can offer face-to-face counselling, or counselling via the telephone or on a video call.
 
This service aims to give you a safe time and place where you can talk to someone who won’t judge you, whilst also providing you with the opportunity to make sense of things and better understand yourself. A large number of our counsellors are trainee counsellors – hence the ability to provide this service at a low-cost.
 
Sessions are available at the flat rate of £15 per session.
