Five to Thrive

The five to thrive model is a way of understanding how connected relationships are fundamental to human wellbeing and help us to build resilient communities. More than 90% of what we know about the brain has been discovered in the last 20 years or so – research in neuroscience is transforming how we think about wellbeing and resilience. One of the key findings is that people need people.

The five to thrive building blocks describe a sequence of relational activities that build healthy brains in young children and maintain healthy brain function throughout life. The simple key words offer a bridge between professional understanding of neuroscience and everyday experience.

South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust runs a confidential secure text messaging service for parents of children aged 0-5 years called ChatHealth. The service operates Monday to Friday between 9am and 4pm, excluding bank holidays. All texts will be responded to by a health visitor within 24 hours. Outside of the service working hours, you’ll receive a message back to inform you that your text will be responded to once the service reopens.

Should you require urgent health advice in the meantime, please contact your GP, visit an NHS walk-in centre or call NHS 111. For emergencies, dial 999 or visit A&E.
