Connect 5 takes the position that we don’t need to be mental health specialists to support those who are experiencing emotional and mental health problems.
Attendees have the option to sign up to session 2.
Connect 5 promotes a whole-person approach to mental health and wellbeing. Devised by Public Health England it forms a key part of the national mental health. prevention agenda.
The ultimate aim of applying the knowledge and tools contained within Connect 5 is to break cycles of spiralling negativity early and start cycles of positive thought, feeling and experience instead.
