£10 pays for one person to have the art materials they need for one month in our therapeutic art group.
£100 pays for 5 weeks of childcare, and this means that women suffering from post-natal depression can attend our mums’ support group.
£500 pays for 8 people with mental health problems to learn to play music in our wellbeing for music group for 2 months.
£1,000 pays for 5 isolated people with mental health problems to be supported by a volunteer befriender for a year .
One of our clients says,
“When I first found West Kent Mind I needed help just to get through days and come to terms with the change that mental ill health had brought to my life. The staff and fellow service users were an amazing support and without them I would have struggled much more than I did. As time has gone by and I have started to recover from my crisis I have found more and more that I am able to grow within West Kent Mind and do more as I feel able. I am now volunteering, and thanks to the art group I have discovered a love of painting that I would never have found without West Kent Mind.”
To continue working towards our goal of no one in the local area with a mental health problem suffering alone, this financial year we need to raise £20,000 via community fundraising.
Please join us to help achieve this and be a piece of Mind!
We will record each of your pieces here on our website. As specific financial targets are reached we will reveal an inspirational true story of how we at West Kent Mind have worked with members of our community suffering from mental health problems, helping and encouraging them to achieve amazing things.
And this is a competition!
We are running this as a competition, with prizes being awarded at a celebratory Piece of Mind Awards Evening for the best profile raiser, most celebrated on social media, funniest, biggest money raiser, top team effort, most unusual, and fun for all.
