From May 2017 we are pleased to be offering a new range of activities and groups to support and improve mental health and wellbeing.

Social Activity Groups

These are varied time-limited programmes (up to 12 months) suitable for anyone who would like to join as part of their recovery journey. There are weekly Social Activity Groups in Edenbridge, Tonbridge, Sevenoaks and Ashford.

  • Creative Minds – includes art (painting, drawing, collage, clay, embroidery, etc), making friends with a book and wellbeing through music.
  • Natural Ways to Wellbeing – growing fruit, vegetables, flowers and garden maintenance in our community gardens in Tonbridge and Sevenoaks, watching wildlife, foraging and guest speakers.
  • Living Well – includes healthy eating, mood and food, relaxation techniques and sports.
Peer Support Groups

These are time-limited programmes, suitable for anyone who would like to join as part of their recovery journey. Group members are able to support each other and share their expertise and learning. There are two types of peer support groups:

  • Project-based groups – meet once a month in Sevenoaks and Tonbridge. Each group will work together on a project for up to 12 months.
  • Condition-based groups:
    • Tonbridge – Hearing Voices Peer Support Group every two weeks on Mondays  11.30am-12pm
