Who We Are

We are South Kent Mind, the mental health charity for people from the South Kent Coastal area. If you are a resident of Folkestone, Hythe, Dover, Deal, Sandwich, New Romney, or anywhere between, we will guide you along the pathway towards better mental health.

We are an independent local charity affiliated to Mind, the national mental health charity. We are run by our own constitution and board of Trustees so that we can best support and represent our local community.

South Kent Mind was originally registered as a charity called Folkestone & District Mind in May 1988. In November 2019, we changed the name to South Kent Mind to ensure we better reflect the area we support.
