Kent safe havens

New services available from 20th April 2020 across Kent and Medway.

Mental health is something that affects us all and it can be really hard to know where to go for advice and support, a listening ear, and professional help that’s available immediately without long waiting lists. That is where we come in!

Mental Health Matters is a national charity that is passionate about supporting people with mental health and emotional welfare needs.

Across Kent and Medway 4 Safe Havens are opening in Canterbury, Maidstone, Thanet and Medway on 20th April 2020!

These are a safe place where people aged 16+ can access immediate support if they are feeling distressed, frightened, overwhelmed, feel like things are getting too much for them, perhaps feel suicidal or thoughts of hurting themselves, maybe they’re isolated or are in crisis.

The great thing about the Kent Safe Havens is that it is free, there’s no referral needed, it is easily accessible, the staff are very skilled and experienced, they offer a welcoming, safe, comfortable, non-judgemental and non-clinical environment. Kent Safe Havens are an out of hours service meaning we are available on evenings for people needing to access support with their emotional wellbeing and mental health needs through visiting the Safe Haven, calling or emailing us.

Kent Safe Havens offering support to more people, helping the wider community:

[Due to COVID-19 we have unfortunately had to reduce the service we are able to currently offer – therefore we are only able to provide telephone and email support at this present time. We hope to be able to provide face-to-face sessions again in the near future.]
