NKM Films

North Kent Mind has been involved in various projects which have resulted in films being produced. Please take a look at them below:

Mindfulness is a process of learning how to live our lives more in the present moment, rather than being on ‘auto-pilot’ or living in ‘our heads’ with our thoughts, worrying about the past or the future. Mindfulness was developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn in 1979, and from this time has been developed for improving mental and physical wellbeing.

Ecology Island is a nature-based intervention, which takes place weekly across 8 sessions in a woodland area of Central Park, Dartford. The participants take part in a range of nature-based activities which allow them to learn new skills in a supported environment, outdoors in nature.
Examples include bushcraft, campfire cooking, scrub clearance, wildlife ID, litter picking, bird and bat box building, wildflower planting and more. https://northkentmind.co.uk/ecology-i…

We offer weekly support with job searching, CVs, mock interviews, dealing with interview anxieties and identifying suitable opportunities, providing tools to move forward in competitive employment., run in conjunction with Porchlight and Live Well Kent & Medway.

Springboard services are run by North Kent Mind, and help people with mental health problems to learn new skills or develop existing ones, become volunteers in other organisations or within North Kent Mind, or seek paid employment. This is a really practical way to gain self-confidence, develop skills and personal qualities and enable people to have a more positive impact on their future.

Aspirations can help you to rediscover your confidence, find ways to cope with your Mental Health and wellbeing, and support you to gain work, volunteering or education opportunities.
