About us

One in four people in the UK will experience mental health issues at some point in their lives. We are passionate about support and recovery for both those affected and their loved ones.

We are commissioned to provide secondary mental health services across Kent and Medway, both in the community and within inpatient settings.

Helen Greatorex, who trained as a mental health nurse, is our chief executive. For more information on our Board, please see our Trust Board page.

How we are regulated

We are regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) which has rated us as Outstanding for caring and Good overall.

The CQC is the independent regulator of health and social care providers in England and we are proud of our record of compliancy with the national standards of care against which it regularly inspects our services.

You can read its latest reports by clicking on the CQC buttons when you view any of our services on this website.
