Making Every Contact Count

Making Every Contact Count (MECC) encourages conversations based on behaviour change methodologies (ranging from brief advice, to more advanced behaviour change techniques), empowering healthier lifestyle choices and exploring the wider social determinants that influence all of our health.

This website provides resources and information to support organisations and individuals implementing MECC using a range of behaviour change methodologies to make their contact count. The website is aimed at:

  • Everyone who comes into contact with members of the public and has the opportunity to have a conversation to improve health.
  • Service providers and organisations who have implemented or are considering implementing MECC.
