The Net and WALT volunteer Anna Kelly has completed the first session in the Connect 5 ‘Train the Trainer’ programme.
The scheme is designed to help volunteers connect with people and endow them with more knowledge of the issues some may face. It also helps empower them as a route to employment.
Connect 5 is a mental health promotion training programme developed from a unique collaboration between Public Health England (PHE) & Health Education England (HEE). It is designed to increase the confidence and core skills of front line staff so that they can be more effective in having conversations about mental health and wellbeing, help people to manage mental health problems and increase their resilience and mental wellbeing through positive changes.
Congratulations Anna! (And good luck with the second session!)
