Designed to prepare course attendees with knowledge and skills to provide brief mental wellbeing interventions, Connect 5 is modular training course that is designed to increase the confidence and skills of frontline staff to have effective conversations about mental wellbeing with adults.

The sessions may be practical and interactive, and can involve presentation, group discussion, small group work and exercises in pairs.

The focus of Connect 5 training is to enable the course attendees to feel more confident and skilled to work collaboratively with individual adults, so that they can help them improve their mental wellbeing.

Medway Public Health Team is pleased to be able to invite expressions of interest for a small number of fully funded places on their Connect 5 ‘Train the Trainer’ course. Funding for this project has been obtained from Health Education England through the Kent and Medway Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP).
