Training for Professionals

We can offer training for healthcare professionals plus a range of resources accessible from this page, all designed to support learners to develop an understanding of public health and how having healthy conversations is everyone’s role.

 Making Every Contact Count (MECC)

MECC Healthy Conversations is an approach that is used in millions of day to day interactions that organisations and individuals have with people, to support them in making positive changes, to both their physical and mental health and wellbeing.

Rather than telling people what to do, Making Every Contact Count is about recognising opportunities to talk to people about their wellbeing using the skills of asking and listening.
