A better Medway

Connect 5 training

Connect 5 is an accredited mental health training programme for front line staff working in:

  • justice and rehabilitation
  • social care
  • housing
  • worklessness
  • social enterprise and the third sector
  • pastoral and education support services.

Connect 5 draws on cognitive behavioural therapy to promote self-help.

On the training, you'll learn how to manage conversations with your clients so that they are better able to understand, manage and improve their own mental health.

Connect 5 offers 3 tiered sessions which are half a day long each, starting with an introductory session and followed by 2 sessions that go into more detail. You can complete as many tiers as you want but will need to complete each session before you can move onto the next one.
