Code: BH/19/0060 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).

In this participatory session on MECC, we shall introduce the concept behind it and offer the tools and resources to deliver it, including resources and the key messages behind the new Public Health campaign ‘One You’.

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