It’s back! Wear It Blue for West Kent Mind from 15-21 May.

Last year you were incredible; schools, football teams, WIs, local councils, theatres, libraries, businesses large and small, individuals and families joined us in wearing it blue for better mental health, raising awareness and valuable funds to support our work in the community.

So this year it’s back, and during Mental Health Awareness Week we are asking you once again to dig out your favourite blue T shirt, pull on your blue jeans, slip on some natty blue socks and join us in wearing it blue!

Mental Health Awareness Week is a chance for all of us to be more open about mental health, to talk, to listen, and to support each other.

One in 4 of us will experience a mental health problem in any given year. Demand for our services continues to rise as we experience the ongoing impact of the pandemic, cost of living crisis and global events.

We want everyone in our community in West Kent to feel comfortable talking about mental health whenever they like. Talking about mental health reduces stigma, helping to create supportive communities where we can talk openly about mental health and feel empowered to seek help when we need it.

Help us to raise awareness and to raise vital funds to support local people to get well, stay well and thrive with better mental health.

What can you do?

  • Pick a day between 15th and 21st May and wear something blue!
