Our Live Well Kent mental health service is expanding to Medway

Tell us what support is needed in the area

Our Live Well Kent mental health service – a network of organisations which support thousands of people each year – is expanding into Medway.

It will be the first time Live Well Kent has operated in the area and will be funded by Kent & Medway Clinical Commissioning Group (health).

We want Medway mental health organisations and people with an interest in mental health support in the area to tell us how it could be improved.

We’re holding two online events this week to hear your views. The aim is to understand what help is already on offer and what more could be provided when future funds are available. The online events take place on:

  • Wednesday, 20 January (2pm to 4pm)
  • Thursday, 21 January (10am to 12 noon)

To register your interest in attending, please email Medwaymentalhealth@porchlight.org.uk

Live Well Kent services in Medway will be led by Porchlight and The Shaw Trust. Between February and April this year, the two charities will be appointing delivery partners to the Live Well Kent network through a tendering process.

This week’s online events are an opportunity for you to influence how the Live Well Kent services will look, as well as to find about more about the tendering process.

If you are unable to attend either of these events, a survey will be sent out as well as an opportunity for people who use mental health services in Medway to share their views.
