Reachout provides friendly and confidential peer support groups for people with mental health difficulties based in the community. Our aim is to reduce isolation and encourage people to be pro-active in managing their own recovery. Those who attend the groups are encouraged to share their personal experiences and coping strategies, and in addition, they have the opportunity to feedback their experiences and views of treatment and care.
Groups meet to make friends and share personal experiences in an environment where members find they can understand one another. Our groups offer friendly, confidential self-help support groups in a caring and non-judgemental environment, facilitated by a paid member of staff.
Group members are given the opportunity to provide anonymous feedback, which we hope will improve mental health services within the local area. On occasions our groups organise guest speakers and social activities.
Reachout currently meets in the following areas on a fortnightly basis: Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge, Sevenoaks, Hawkhurst, Cranbrook and Edenbridge.
