A little chat goes a long way

The aim of the free Making Every Contact Count (MECC) training Living Well Sefton provides is to make the most of opportunities front line workers have to start a healthy chat.

Anyone attending will be given advice and support to provide a brief intervention so other people can think about making positive behaviour changes in order to  live longer, healthier lives.

Already, hundreds of people have attended our popular Making Every Contact Count training and there are new courses coming up later this month and in September that you may want to book onto.

Through the Level 1 training, attendees will gain:
an overview of the health and wellbeing of Sefton’s population;
an increased knowledge about the key health messages;
an awareness of what support services are available and what they provide;
the skills to have a healthy chat;
a recognitition of the opportunities to have a healthy chat;
an ability to use the 3As to deliver a health chat in Sefton.

Through the Level 2 training, attendees will further build on the skills learned in Level 1.

Living Well Sefton now has several dates for delivering MECC training: book on through the Eventbrite page.
