Making Every Contact Count (MECC) is about taking every opportunity to ask, assist and advise people about their lifestyles, particularly about:

  • smoking
  • alcohol
  • physical activity
  • healthy eating
  • mental wellbeing

 

It is not nagging or harrassing or telling people what to do. Instead it uses evidence-based methods to empower and enable people to make the changes they choose.

After the training you will receive a certificate.

 

You can book your choice of training date here, or if you'd like to discuss bespoke training for your team (or anything else about the training) please contact blanen@ealing.gov.uk or call Nell Blane (Health Training Coordinator) on 0208 825 5683 / 07715 234546.

 

MECC Training is run by Ealing Council Public Health Department.

If you would like to augment the face-to-face training, or are unable to attend, you may like to do MECC e-learning. There is a good programme at http://www.e-lfh.org.uk/programmes/making-every-contact-count/. It has four modules each of 20 minutes, and you receive a certificate for each one.
