Our Vision

We strive to support our community with free, accessible mental health support and information in calm, inclusive and inviting surroundings with great food & music. Good food and services have the power to enhance our communities and transform our everyday lives.

The vision for Revival evolved over many years and was devised in response to often ‘old-fashioned’ ideas and expectations of mental health spaces and approaches.

Revival, Food & Mood was eventually set up as a self-funded social enterprise by Mind in Bexley and East Kent in 2016, with the first Whitstable cafe hub opening in the summer of 2017, run as a community café and mental health hub for families, young people and adults. An innovative model premised on access for all in a purposefully visible, accessible, central High Street location supporting our community’s wellness journey with an emphasis on prevention and proactive self-care, providing informal support and information as well as facilitated peer support and mentoring, workshops, talks & discussion groups, wellness activities, referral pathways, signposting and space for the community to meet, upskill, train, volunteer and work.

We believe good food and services have the power to enhance our communities and transform our everyday lives.
