What is Making Every Contact Count (MECC)?

The MECC approach has been developed by Public Health England and the NHS, and is about supporting our service users to make positive changes to their physical and mental health and wellbeing

In our session, we will explore strategies and techniques to raise awareness with clients about health and wellbeing information, and signposting to healthy lifestyle resources. MECC focuses on the lifestyle issues that, when addressed, can make great improvements to an individual’s health

  • Stopping smoking
  • Drinking alcohol only within the recommended limits
  • Healthy eating
  • Being physically active
  • Keeping to a healthy weight
  • Improving mental health and wellbeing

Who is this training for?

This training is for staff or volunteers who are in contact with service users during the course of their day-to-day work. MECC recognises that staff across the health, local authority and voluntary sectors have thousands of contacts with individuals every day and are uniquely placed to promote health and healthy lifestyles.

We are invite a wide range of services and organisations in the Bromley borough, so this is also an excellent opportunity for networking with others.

Register and reserve your place today.  The session is suitable for anyone engaging with the public on a daily basis
