LOOKING AFTER OUR MENTAL HEALTHWritten by Carole Cox
I have recently attended a Connect 5 course with East Hants MIND. This is run for charities and community groups and individuals working in key settings are 100% subsidised, thanks to funding from Hampshire Public Health.
The Connect 5 Course can be delivered as a 2 day face to face or on-line as three half day sessions. It was an excellent opportunity to learn how to listen to and help others at work, personally or through our outreach at church. I also found it really helpful to review how I look after my own mental wellbeing – which I think will be essential in the months to come.
The Connect 5 course aims to build the capacity and capability of people to have more proactive and evidence-based conversations about mental health. Full details can be found at https://www.easthantsmind.org/
