Solace Café

The Solace Café is currently open online only via Zoom on Thursday and Saturday evenings between 5pm and 9pm. 


Please call us on 07436 102171 or email solacecafe@westkentmind.org.uk to find out how to access the café.


The Solace Café in Tonbridge is an initiative for people who are at risk of developing a mental health crisis and are in need of support and social contact. The café provides a safe and non-judgemental environment for people to meet others with similar problems, and to access mental health support and advice from peers and professionals.

We reserve the time between 7pm and 8.45pm for newcomers and those in, or approaching, a mental health crisis. This allows us to give more time and space to have 1-2-1 conversations, advice, signposting and support.

Anyone aged 18 and over and at risk of developing a mental health crisis can access the service during the opening hours. We want you to get the right kind of help, so we ask that when possible you contact us before coming to the café. You can contact us by calling 01732 356630 or 07436 102171 during café opening hours, 01732 744950 during office hours, or emailing solacecafe@westkentmind.org.uk.

You can also come directly to the café during opening hours (last entry 8:45pm) and we will discuss your needs with you on arrival. If you are new to the cafe we encourage you to arrive after 7pm when we have more capacity to meet with you one-to-one.
