Mid Kent Mind are delighted to share that we have received funding as part of the RECONNECT Programme.

To quote from the Kent County Council webpage on this project:

“Reconnect is a community-led programme designed to get Kent’s children and young people back to enjoying the activities and opportunities they took part in before COVID-19 – as well as the chance to try new things along the way. Everyone can get involved!”

Mid Kent Mind are excited to be able to offer some of our Cognitive Behavioural Coaching (CBC) courses as a part of the Reconnect Programme – providing young people with the opportunities to learn more about their mental health and wellbeing so that they are better equipped and in a more emotionally resilient position to go on to enjoy the activities and opportunities which they embraced before the pandemic. Our aim is to provide young people with safe spaces where they can explore any negative thoughts or feelings which they may have in the wake of the pandemic, so that we can help them to overcome them and prevent them from becoming a barrier which prevents young people from re-engaging with society.

As a part of this programme, we are happy to be able to share that we will once again be working with our long-standing partners at Youth Resilience UK – who will help with the delivery and facilitation of the sessions available as a part of this programme. You will find full details on the courses available as a part of Mid Kent Mind’s RECONNECT offering below.

Calligraphy Courses

We are pleased to share that we are introducing new dates for  Wellbeing Calligraphy for young people thanks to funding from Kent County Council’s RECONNECT programme.

Courses will be delivered virtually via ZOOM, and are facilitated by our partner organisation, Youth Resilience UK

This will take the form of a three-week Calligraphy course which will encourage young people to learn basic skills around calligraphy. As a part of the group they will have the opportunity to learn how to create name tags and place cards.

The hope is that this group will encourage young people to develop new skills and interests – benefitting their wellbeing during an otherwise difficult and challenging period of time.

Tackling Your Teens  (Formerly Life After Lockdown)

Tackling Your Teens (Formerly Life After Lockdown) is a four week programme which is designed to equip young people with the tools and the knowledge they need to better prepare themselves for the ways in which they engage with their peers, and also the wider world. 

This course aims to provide young people with a opportunity to explore some of the topics which are most prevalent in the world today – giving them a chance to better understand how these things can influence both their mental health, and their wellbeing.
