Who we are
Folkestone and District Mind is an independent charity which provides support, information and advice to anyone resident in the Shepway area, who has experienced or is experiencing mental distress.
Our organisation shares the view that without mental health there is no health. Most of our staff have either experienced mental distress themselves or through relatives and friends. We understand how difficult it can be for anyone exposed to mental distress and the impact this can have on others.
We believe that as a part of our work we should offer hope and support for people to recover and live their lives on their own terms. Everyone has a contribution to make and has a voice to be heard regardless of their mental health.
