Ashford Wellbeing Cafe A chance to connect with other people and benefit from support with your mental health and wellbeing.


Mid Kent Mind will be closed from 5pm on the 27th of May 2022 and will reopen at 9am on the 6th of June 2022. As a team we will be taking a break over the Jubilee week ready to return refreshed and re-energised in June.

Our counselling services will run as normal unless you have been otherwise notified.

Our Cafe Services will be run as normal on the 27th, 28th and 29th of May but will be closed on the 3rd, 4th and 5th of June.

If you need additional support whilst we are closed, Release The Pressure will be available 24/7 on 0800 107 0160. You can also text the word ‘Kent’ to 85258 to access text support. 

Thank you for your support. We look forward to seeing you again in June!


Our Ashford Wellbeing Cafe provides drop-in support in the heart of Ashford.

The goal with this service is to reduce isolation and also prevent people from experiencing periods of mental health crisis. This means that this service is unable to accommodate anyone who is presenting in crisis, experiencing active psychosis or self-harming. If you are experiencing any of these, please contact the Mental Health Crisis Team or head to A and E for immediate support.


Support from the Ashford team is available during the following hours:


Fridays: 5pm – 9pm

Saturdays: 5pm – 9pm  

Sundays: 1pm – 5pm


Alongside a change in hours, the cafe service will also be available from a new location – with support available at the South Ashford Baptist Church, Brookfield Rd, Ashford, TN23 4EY.

Parking is available on site. You can find this location on the Google Map below:



Our Wellbeing Cafe has a set of rules agreed upon with our clients which helps to ensure a safe space for everyone accessing the service.
