MECC: Simple Signposting to Better Health and Wellbeing

Making Every Contact Count, or MECC, is an effective and evidence-based approach to improving people’s health and wellbeing by helping them change their behaviour. MECC encourages you to use your day-to-day interactions with the public, to engage in conversations about improving their health, addressing risk factors such as alcohol, diet, physical activity, smoking and mental wellbeing.

The MECC Link London resource is intended for use by health and social care professionals, GPs, nurses, police, social prescribers, and anyone offering frontline help and support in communities across London. By choosing location view you can see your local services by borough.
