The Kent County Mental Health Resources page was developed with several goals in mind.
Anyone who has experienced mental health conditions, and those who care about them, have experienced the frustration of feeling alone, isolated, and confused about what resources are available to them. This is especially true at the onset of symptoms. There are many programs and professionals who want to help. Finding them can be a challenge.
We hope this site will become a go-to web page for anyone searching for mental health resources available in Kent County. We acknowledge that the site is not all inclusive. There are undoubtedly other resources which are not included here. All of the resources here are suggested or endorsed by one or more of the co-sponsoring agencies. We believe that professionals, specialists, educational programs and support groups must have a heart for those living with a mental health diagnosis and those who care for and love them.
Each of the Co-Sponsors provide unique resources. They are all non-profit organizations and do not charge for their services. Each sponsor has their own niche and is very good at what they do best. They are not competitors but rather provide complimentary services. We hope that by providing a single place to review all of their services, you will be able to choose the services that best fit your needs. They have extensive experience and enthusiastic volunteers and staff who are willing and able to lend a hand. They also know of many others to whom they can refer and work with who are equally qualified.
We know how difficult it can be to live with and recovery from a mental health condition. We understand how painful the loss of dreams and future plans can be. We are aware of the devastation that relapse can bring. And we recognize how difficult it is to find help, identify support and gain strength in these circumstances. We know the frustration of trying to locate resources only to find them in bits and pieces here and there. We have lived it too. That is why we created and maintain this site.
It is our hope and prayer that you will find this website useful as you navigate through the sea of available resources in the Kent County area. If you have comments, concerns or suggestions on how this site can be improved please let us know. We would welcome any suggestions for additional listings as well. However, be aware that each listing must go through a vetting process so we cannot guarantee that we would include them here.
