Kent Enablement and Recovery Service for mental health

Kent Enablement and Recovery Service (KERS) works with people experiencing mental health difficulties to address social care needs over a short period of time (up to 12 weeks). We provide support to maximize your wellbeing and quality of life, in a way that suits you. We also work with local community services to help you find a creative and realistic response to your needs.

If you are experiencing mental health difficulties we can support you in the following ways:

  • accessing community resources, groups, activities, clubs and organisations
  • regaining confidence to use public transport and getting out and about
  • managing uncomfortable social situations
  • enabling you to independently manage your finances
  • helping you gain confidence with training, education or work related actives
  • supporting to access housing and benefit advice.
