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 two years 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.
The awards focus on kindness, wellbeing and mental health – and are staged by the mental health charity South Kent Mind, in collaboration with local Mind charities in Kent and Medway.
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.
The event is supported by Stagecoach, Kent Community Foundation, The National Lottery Community Fund, Loch Associates, Medway Council, Crossways Community, Independent Music Productions, Cactus Graphics previously known as Buckland Press, Blé Couture Cakes, Ashford International Hotel.
Nominations can be submitted until noon on 1 September.
