Making Every Contact Count

One Life Suffolk is offering training called Making Every Contact Count. Making Every Contact Count will provide you with the skills, confidence and tools to have a positive and effective conversation about health and behaviour change; particularly around weight management, stopping smoking and increasing physical activity. Having even a brief chat with someone about what is happening in their life can be all it takes to make a positive impact to their health and wellbeing. That’s where the Making Every Contact Count training will help you.

What is Making Every Contact Count?

MECC is an approach to behaviour change. It utilises the millions of day-to-day interactions organisations and individuals have with other people to support them in making positive changes to their physical and mental wellbeing. This model is relevant for everyone who comes into contact with people and has an opportunity to encourage positive behaviour change. However, we know that telling people what to do is not the most effective way to help them change. Making Every Contact Count is about altering how we interact with people through having Healthy Conversations and learning how to spot opportunities to talk to people about their wellbeing.
