Adele Kempton

“I suppose it’s just listening that’s the most important thing. Sometimes we haven’t got an answer for something but just the fact that they’ve got you on the other end.”

Adele Kempton first experienced depression as a teenager, and was eventually diagnosed as bi-polar. Her experience of a mental health condition helps with her work at Mind in Kingston. Offering services to people across the Borough, Mind aims to promote mental health in the community in a positive light.
