Code: BH/22/0149 Introduction to Making Every Contact Count (MECC)

Making Every Contact Count (MECC) is a national Public Health initiative encouraging and helping people to make healthier choices to achieve positive long-term behaviour change by providing ‘Very Brief Interventions’.

Very Brief Interventions are pro-actively introducing the idea of lifestyle change and motivating individuals to start making changes to their lifestyle behaviour(s). They are usually given opportunistically and are a short intervention (usually from 30 seconds to 3 minutes).

MECC is intended for anyone who has contact with people to “Make Every Contact Count” and develop their public health knowledge; It develops confidence to deliver health and wellbeing messages which encourage people to change their behaviour and to direct them to local services that can support them.

Through the e-learning modules and participatory online session, we shall introduce the concept behind it and offer the tools and resources to deliver it, including resources and the key messages behind the Public Health campaign ‘One You’. 

Please read the course pre-requisites before requesting a place.

Code: BH/22/0569 Resilience for Managers (Microsoft Teams) (EVENT FULL)

Coronavirus has changed the way almost all of us work now. It has also affected all aspects of our lives. Whether you are working from home, needing to continue your usual work in the community with social distancing safety measures, or unable to work right now, there is a need to be aware of your personal resilience.

This highly interactive session will give you the opportunity to reflect on your current resilience levels, learn some tips on looking after yourself during the COVID19 crisis, and discuss with others aspects of resilience that are particularly important in these difficult times.

Being resilient can help you bounce back in tough times, cope with additional pressures and stay healthy in times of change. Learning habits that build your resilience, ready for more turbulent times, will prevent you becoming over-whelmed by circumstances and keep you healthier in body and mind.

This short session will introduce you to a resilience model against which you will self-assess against your current state of resilience, show you how a stronger base of resilience will help you cope with changes at work and home.
