The East Kent Friends of Mental Health Annual General Meeting will take place on Wednesday 4 October 2017 at the Education Centre, St Martin's Hospital, Canterbury.
Meeting begins: 6:00pm
This is your chance to come and hear about some of the projects the Friends of Mental Health in East Kent have supported that have helped people with mental health needs over the last year.
The Friends for Mental Health is a charity that has supported people who have mental health problems for over 50 years; both people in hospital and those living in the community.
Friends for Mental Health (East Kent) consist of volunteers who dedicate their time to raise funds. They provide amenities and facilities such as shops, as well as organising fundraising events and championing causes.
Funds raised have been used to help those with mental health needs and their families – this includes paying for education classes or travel, funding art exhibitions and music therapy, supporting people when they leave hospital and are setting up a new home.
They work collaboratively with other agencies to provide holistic support to people with mental health needs for instance MIND, Umbrellas, and Rethink.
