Code: SGC/20/1163 Connect 5 Live-Online Module 2: Changing the Conversation on Mental Wellbeing

Connect 5 is an accredited, evidence based workforce training programme. It is an incremental, three-module programme, escalating skills through each session. Participants can choose to take Module 1 only, Module 1 & 2, or Module 1, 2 & 3.

Connect 5 aims to improve population mental wellbeing by changing the way we have conversations about mental health.
