Making Every Contact Count

Making Every Contact Count

MECC aims to give you and your organisation the skills and training you need to engage more effectively with the people you meet. We know that simply ‘telling’ people what to do is not the best way to get them to change their habits and improve their wellbeing. It’s how you interact with them – that’s what MECC is all about.

Training is at the heart of what we offer – it provides you with the skills to engage individuals in conversations about the benefits of behaviour change to boost physical and mental health and wellbeing. It’s free and includes:

  • Five Ways to Wellbeing
  • Behaviour Change Models and Concepts
  • Motivational Interviewing Skills
  • Have a Word – Alcohol Brief Interventions
  • Brief Interventions for Smoking
  • Mental Health First Aid
  • Connect 5
  • Very Brief Mental Health Intervention
  • Healthy Weight Brief Advice
  • Physical Activity Brief Advice
  • Nutrition Brief Advice
  • Basic Drug Awareness including Novel Psychoactive Substances
  • Train the Trainer courses
