Making every contact count (MECC)

What is MECC?

MECC is a technique that uses our combined millions of small daily conversations to have a positive effect on each other's health and wellbeing.

Many illnesses are linked to known risk factors, like tobacco, high blood pressure, alcohol, being overweight or being physically inactive.

Making changes such as stopping smoking, improving diet, increasing physical activity, losing weight and reducing alcohol consumption can help us to significantly reduce our risk of poor health. Nagging does not work but MECC can!
