PROUD TO BE SUPPORTING MENTAL HEALTH 💙
As our followers will know we are a mental health social enterprise café under East Kent Mind. Our priority has always been and will always be raising mental health awareness, challenging stigma and providing an inclusive space open for all, for peer support groups and for well-being initiatives (our delicious menu is pretty key too 😁).

We believe that mental health is not something separate to be shuffled off to a dark corner, or something that only certain organisations should deal with. Yes there are, and need to be specialists, but when 1 in 4 of us will experience mental health issues in our lifetime we should all be involved in protecting and promoting well-being and supporting vulnerable and isolated people to access community spaces.

We were recently told that we shouldn’t be using our space to provide mental health services, that we are just a café. Anyone who knows anything about us or what we do will realise how shocked (and angry) we were to hear this. The very existence of Revival is for better mental health, for mental health outreach, challenging that sort of lazy ignorant stereotype about what mental health services should look like. We have worked so hard to be part of the normalising of mental health in spaces for all.

We have had some time to digest these comments and have decided to respond in the most positive way we can, we are not going to stop doing what we are doing - we are going to shout even louder about it! Our first step has been to make our mental health support information even more visible in the café! We have 2nd, 3rd, 4th and even more steps to come and are really excited about sharing our plans when ready.

We do also want to take this opportunity to thank everyone that has and continues to support what we do, luckily the positive, genuinely empathetic, kind, passionate and forward thinking far outweigh this one negative, backward looking person. We continue to be humbled by the support and positive feedback we receive and this is the spark for the fire that keeps us going🔥so THANK YOU! #wegetknockeddownbutwegetupagain #mentalhealthmatters #whitstablesupportsmentalhealth

Collaboration and Partnership at its best ❤️We love working together with others to support the local Community and we were thrilled when the Food Bank Canterbury said they would like to donate towards our Food Friends partnership to support those with Mental Health needs.
Thank you The Umbrella Café and Food Friends you’re just Ace!Food Friends and I took a trip to Food Bank Canterbury earlier today and look at the amazingness we came away with! 👇

Thank you so much to the lovely volunteers at the distribution hub for getting in touch and offering us donations towards our Social Pantry project, our kitchen and also Cafe Revival at the Horsebridge. What a wonderful collaboration 💛

Our Pantry cupboards are VERY well stocked now!

As a Charity we meet kind and decent people all the time and have been really lucky to have the support of so many of the local community.

We would like to give a special shout out today to Keith &Co from @cathedralelectrical who go above and beyond to help us when needed. We had to replace a broken oven today, we had no idea when the new one would arrive or if it would fit! He told us to just let him know when it arrived and he’d see what he could do.

With only an hours notice he turned up, took out the old cooker, helped us move everything to get the new one in, rang round to find a part needed and drove to get it so we wouldn’t be without a cooker for tomorrow. They had to move sockets and connections to make sure it fit the best it could in our tiny kitchen, then stayed late to make sure it was working. They are just brilliant and we can’t thank them enough 🤩❤️ 🌟 🌟

💙 Special thanks to our lovely Lynne Lynne Forester for facilitating this activity for #WorldMentalHealthDay2020This year, East Kent Mind and Mind in Bexley celebrated World Mental Health Day with their Volunteers and Mentors Peer Groups 💙

We would like to thank everyone that took part to make this event a success 🙏

We looked at the ways in which we, as front line workers, can help implement ‘Mental Health for All’ (The World Federation of Mental Health).

We did this through a variety of activities that focused on our own awareness towards stereotyping and Implicit Bias. We created a tailor made game for this purpose, as well as a quiz and a slide show to understand how assumptions of people’s appearances, words and actions could restrict inclusiveness.

The event was facilitated by East Kent Mind’s and Mind in Bexley’s Mentors Coordinators and was cofacilitated by volunteers.

Thank you again to everyone that took part 😊
