Do you work with people with health conditions? Are you interested in learning new skills to provide support and advice to promote healthy lifestyle changes?

 Your Bromley Well Long Term Health Conditions Service is running this FREE workshop on using the Making Every Contact Count approach on Wednesday 15th January 2020 1:30pm–4:30pm.

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 the session, we'll 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.

The session is also an excellent opportunity for networking with others.

Register and reserve your place today.

Get in touch with us or book via Eventbrite.

We look forward to seeing you!
