Suicide Prevention

To further our essential work with suicide prevention we would like to extend our safeTALK service to provide additional listeners, additional hours of operation, and additional locations.

A donation to Folkestone & District Mind’s Suicide Prevention Project would enable us to further this service and to provide support available to help those with suicidal thoughts or ideation.

Furnishing Community Space

Peer Support Group

Our peer-support groups provide an opportunity for those with lived experience to share their knowledge and expertise with people in a similar situation or with those facing similar challenges but at a different stage of their journey. Building resilience is a key part of our role and the peer support groups help to support that aim.
