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.
How to get help
- speak to your care co-ordinator, your primary care social worker or primary care nurse
- alternatively speak to your GP in confidence about mental health matters
- search local activities, groups and support services for people with mental health problems in Kent and our local carer's organisations can help you if you are currently looking after someone with mental health problems.
