The red theme is all about relationships and connectedness. The three phases see a progression from re-connecting with others through to reflecting on experiences. Following a period of crisis, connectedness is core to supporting positive well-being and future outcomes. This is increasingly important as this period requires that we find new ways to connect and develop relationships in an era of social distancing and social restriction. The power of connection is a theme that has haunted and lifted this period, we have seen worries of isolation and loneliness against a backdrop of national connection through clap for carers, through community and through the visual image of the rainbow. The red theme starts off our rainbow to emphasise the importance of relationships to all of us and to our mental health.
