About this Event

Background:

NB this is a 4.5 day course. The first day only is listed on the main event page. See below for further dates.

We have a unique opportunity in Frome to train 20 people in Connect 5. This course is for people wishing to become a Connect 5 Trainer and who will be able to present Connect 5 courses in the future within their organisation or community.

What is Connect 5?

Connect 5 is an evidenced based collaborative prevention toolkit and approach that promotes psychological knowledge, understanding and awareness and the development of skills, which empower people to take proactive steps to build resilience and look after themselves. Connect 5 is an incremental three-session programme, escalating skills though each session. The programme underpins the principle of ‘Making Every Contact Count’ and supports the aim of making the best use of the skills and local contacts of frontline staff.

Who can attend the Connect 5 ‘Train the Trainer’ course?

We are looking for people who feel comfortable in training adults, community members, community groups, friends, family and colleagues. People who can do this as part of your current role or on a voluntary basis. We would like to train people who are passionate about helping improve mental wellbeing.

What does the train the trainer involve?

We will train up 20 Frome Connect 5 Trainers. The course is in Frome and runs over 4.5 days. • The first 2.5 days of this ‘train the trainer’ course will be experiencing the actual the 3 stages of the public Connect 5 course. • The final 2 days will be supported learning to help you to present the courses/facilitation skills – • You must attend all 4.5 days to become a Connect 5 Trainer. • You need to commit to cascading the full course x 2.

Let’s all come together to try to make an impact on the wellbeing of Frome.
