Walking for Wellbeing
Walking for wellbeing is open to all. It is a friendly relaxed group helping you to connect with nature, the community and your local area. You can walk and talk, walk and watch or just walk your way knowing you are not alone.
We meet in various locations within the Canterbury District and walk for about an hour from 10am every Sunday, details can be found on our Facebook events – Walking for Wellbeing Revival East Kent Mind.
Revival works alongside East Kent Mind on a goal-oriented Mentoring service. This is a six month programme focusing on helping participants to improve their mental health and wellbeing.
The mentoring relationship is one of mutual trust and respect, mentors use their own lived experience and knowledge to support and empower mentees to engage and work towards positive mental health, identifying solutions and taking action that is right for them.
Working in this way can reassure mentees that they are not alone in how they are feeling and that they can move forward in connecting with others giving them a sense of belonging.
If you feel that this approach would be beneficial to you, you will be matched with one of our trained Mental Health Mentors who will provide 1-2-1 support to encourage you to value your strengths, build your self-esteem and confidence and help you to feel more hopeful about the future. Using the accredited Recovery Star model, along with weekly discussion, you will be able to see clear evidence of your progress, helping you to improve motivation, enhance your skills and gain empowerment and choice.
