The Connect 5 Programme is an accessible, evidenced based training that is relevant to the whole of the public facing workforce including volunteers. It provides participants with skills and competencies that build confidence in having conversations about mental health and wellbeing. It presents tools to empower others to take proactive steps to build resilience and look after themselves. 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.
New Format Connect 5 – is now delivered over 2 rather than 3 sessions.
The trainining also enables you to:
Consider how to support someone experiencing bleak thoughts including those of self-harm & suicide & learnt about other sources of support
Learn about the importance of self-care & maintaining our own wellbeing
Connect 5 complements other training including Making Every Contact Count (MECC) and Mental Health First Aid and Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST)
