From 16 October - 30 November 2020, RSPH and Health Education England (HEE) North are calling for expressions of interest and feedback to support a new Making Every Contact Count (MECC) for Mental Health project. This project aims to support the non-specialist primary and community care workforce, by supplying high-quality and evidence-based mental health and wellbeing training. People who take part in the training will develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to integrate relevant mental health messages and interventions into routine practice.

The consultation on training content and methodology is open to individuals and organisations that have a responsibility, needs or experience in mental health promotion training in primary and/or community care settings. You can access the survey here  - It should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.

The call for expressions of interest is for primary and community care organisations across the North, to nominate individuals within their staff to become Lead Trainers and Trainers for the project. We are recruiting 14 Lead Trainers (2 per STP/ICS area) and 86 Trainers (12 per STP/ICS area). They will be selected based on their competence to deliver the training as well as their capacity to do it within their existing role. A training grant towards covering some of their time will be provided to their organisation. Please read here for the full details.

To make a nomination, the organisation must provide an email or letter of support to the individual and ask them to complete ONE of the following forms:

If you have any questions about the project, please do get in touch with Nelly Araujo, Project Lead.
