Making Every Contact Count (MECC) Training

This training is available for frontline staff and volunteers who work directly with individuals, key organisations and large workplaces.

Making Every Contact Count (MECC) is about using our everyday conversations to help people make positive changes to their physical and mental health and wellbeing.  This free training will help you to encourage people to think about change and offer help, such as signposting to local services and groups, or by providing further information.  

There are three types of MECC training available:

A short (1 hour) training session suitable for frontline staff/volunteers who have completed previous MECC training, but need some refresher training to support and enhance their MECC interventions.

A 3.5 hour training session for frontline staff/volunteers who have not completed any previous MECC training.

The online MECC training covers:

  • How you can support someone to explore their own health and wellbeing.
  • How using more effective responses can help people to find their own solutions.
  • How you can support someone to think about their own behaviour change plan.

The aim of the ‘train the trainer’ programme is for MECC to become sustainable and fully embedded within key organisations e.g. Acute Trusts, District/Borough Councils and large workplaces.

The course is delivered over 3 days and enables frontline staff/volunteers to develop the confidence and competence to become MECC trainers/champions, so they can deliver ‘in-house’ training sessions for colleagues.

How to book onto MECC Training:

All MECC training is delivered for free by Everyone Health Staffordshire.

To view dates of all online training sessions and to book a place, visit the Bookwhen website.

Alternatively, if you would like to discuss arranging a face to face ‘in-house’ session for your team (minimum 6 participants), please email: zoewilliams@everyonehealth.co.uk
