Connect 5

Connect 5 training aims to enable people to feel more confident and skilled to work together with individuals to help them improve their mental wellbeing. The training is based on cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). It can help people to recognise and change some of the unhelpful patterns of thinking or behaviour that are causing their difficulties, so they can improve the way they feel.


Connect 5 training is a course made up of three modules. It gives people the skills and confidence to have conversations that empower individuals to take action to improve their mental health and wellbeing. It gives an introduction to the Five Ways to Wellbeing and the Five Areas model, (on which the three Connect 5 training sessions are based), different public health models of mental health, mental illness and mental wellbeing along with starting conversations about mental wellbeing and the key skills needed. The programme uses the principles of Making Every Contact Count.
