The Connect 5 programme
COVID-19 - Connect 5 courses
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, there are no Connect 5 courses running at the moment.
We hope to provide some new course dates in the near future.
Wiltshire, Bath and North East Somerset provide a free mental health training programme called Connect 5.
It is an evidence based training programme. Any public facing workforce can undergo this training. The training helps to build confidence, skills and competencies required to have conversations about mental health and wellbeing. It provides tools to empower others so people can take proactive steps to build resilience and look after themselves.
Connect 5 reflects that you do not need not be a mental health specialist to support people with emotional and mental health problems.
The course is accredited by the Royal Society of Public Health and is delivered by a range of local accredited trainers. It is a modular course with up to three sessions available. The number of sessions covered depends on the role you are interested in.
