Please note that all of our ZOOM sessions are recorded for quality control and monitoring purposes. This is done to ensure that we have a record of these sessions so that we can action anything which may arise in a specific session – such as a safeguarding concern.

These recordings are held securely and are only accessible by Mid Kent Mind staff and by delivery partners or service funders. These recordings will never be shared publicly unless exceptional circumstances require this – and we will always seek permission before this occurs.  


If you have any questions about Mid Kent Mind’s Community Activity or Peer Support Groups, then you are welcome to e-mail our team via mindhelp@midkentmind.org.uk.
