We are delighted to highlight the Kent Mental Health and Wellbeing Awards – a fantastic new opportunity to highlight the excellent support that so many organisations and individuals provide to people across Kent.
You’ll find more details on the awards, and what they will entail, below. We hope you get involved in marking this exciting new event!
The Kent Mental Health and Wellbeing Awards is an annual event to showcase the people, organisations and initiatives that help us cope with life.
Never has that support been more important than in the last year as we struggled to comprehend Covid19 and the impact and stress of lockdown.
Whether it is in your business, community or family, so many of us have been lucky to have people and organisations with ideas, tips and tactics to help us cope – it is time to celebrate those mental health and wellbeing champions in our community and share this best practice.
Mid Kent Mind is helping to champion the event and encouraging charities, businesses, schools and community groups to get involved.
Do you know someone who has made a difference in our area during the COVID-19 pandemic? If so, we want to hear from you!
We want to help to amplify the voices of the people in Maidstone, Swale and Ashford – highlighting that it’s OK not to be OK. These awards are a great way to do just that – whilst rallying our community together around a common cause.
Nominations can be linked to a simple act of kindness that lifted the spirits, a business that has improved staff wellbeing, through to a targeted initiative delivered by a charity or statutory organisation to support a mental health issue.
Nominations can be submitted until noon on Wednesday, 1 September.
