Coronavirus: Information and advice

Small changes could lead to big health benefits

MECC is a healthy lifestyle training programme that promotes healthy behaviour changes such as stopping smoking, physical activity, eating healthily and positive mental wellbeing. MECC training encourages you to have ‘health chats’ and learn how to signpost people to support services (if appropriate) which helps employees and local residents to become healthy and stay healthy.

MECC training will help you to have those conversations by providing ideas, inspiration and different ways of approaching health topics.

Why not make the most of MECC and book onto training. There are two free sessions per month at the Civic Centre or you can request a MECC overview at your team meetings.

MECC aims to improve health and reduce health inequalities, and is a national programme developed for Oldham Council by the Public Health department and the development academy.

MECC training is two and a half hours and MECC overviews for staff meetings take approximately 30 minutes, so you can choose which type of training suits your team best.
