What is Making Every Contact Count (MECC)?

Making Every Contact Count is an approach to behaviour change that utilises the millions of day to day interactions that organisations and individuals have with other people to support them in making positive changes to their physical and mental health and wellbeing. MECC enables the opportunistic delivery of consistent and concise healthy lifestyle information and enables individuals to engage in conversations about their health at scale across organisations and populations.

The fundamental idea underpinning the MECC approach is simple. It recognises that staff across health, local authority and voluntary sectors, have thousands of contacts every day with individuals and are ideally placed to promote health and healthy lifestyles.

If you or your team works directly with members of the public, MECC could help you make a bigger difference to the residents you serve. This interactive session will help you to develop practical skills to reduce loneliness, and support people to stay well and to enjoy healthier, happier lives.
