Mental Wellbeing Information Hub: Signposting to support and services

8 October 2021


Kent and Medway’s Mental Wellbeing Information Hub is an online one-stop place to help signpost you to support and services.

Whether you are feeling anxious or stressed, down or low or are just interested in finding out what help is available, the information hub is there for you.

Ahead of World Mental Health Day (10 October 2021) Dr Jihad Malasi, NHS Kent and Medway Clinical Commissioning Group’s GP Clinical Lead for Mental Health, said: “There’s a wealth of information about services and support available to people in Kent and Medway on our online Mental Wellbeing Information Hub.

“If you feel you need support with you mental wellbeing, the hub can help guide you to the help that’s there for you.”

The hub includes sections specifically for:

Better Health Mind Plan

There’s also an area dedicated to helping you stay well while supporting others and links to apps and online tools, including the Better Health-Every Mind Matters Mind Plan.

Through the Mind Plan, by answering five simple questions online, adults can get a personalised mental health action plan with practical tips for helping deal with stress and anxiety, boost their mood, sleep better, and feel more in control.

Dr Malasi added: “If you are feeling anxious, stressed, low or having problems with sleeping, please don’t delay in seeking help. Every Mind Matters and the Mind Plan are great places to start.”  

What works for you

The impact and experience of the past 18 months has been difficult for us all. 

Better Health-Every Mind Matters has launched a campaign to support the nation’s mental wellbeing, showing the little things we can all do and how these can make a big difference; helping us to lead happier, healthier lives and cope with life’s challenges.

At the heart of the campaign is the free, NHS-approved Mind Plan. 

Search Every Mind Matters to see what works for you.

Health and social care staff


The information hub also hosts, on the health and care workers section, the staff wellbeing support portal through which people working in health and social care in Kent and Medway can access a team of clinicians, providing a free and confidential space to talk about how the pandemic has left them feeling.

The service is managed by Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust (KMPT). 

Dr Lona Lockerbie, KMPT's Strategic and Clinical Lead for the  staff wellbeing portal, said: “If you are a health and social care professional working in Kent and Medway and are having trouble sleeping, or are feeling anxious or unhappy with life in general, please get in touch with the mental health and wellbeing team.  

"You don’t need to see a GP first, you can contact us direct through the portal. We’re here to support you, because your mental health and wellbeing is important."
