Taking action on smoking and health
ASH Scotland is organising a briefing and dissemination event for the IMPACT Project which was a two year project funded by Edinburgh and Lothians Health Foundation. The focus for the Project was on the development of guidance to encourage community based third-sector mental health organisations to discuss smoking with the people they support. The event takes place on 21 March 2017 at the Grassmarket Community Project in Edinburgh and features a presentation by the Scottish Minister for Mental Health Maureen Watt.
The STA Council proposes to stage a meeting in the morning to compliment the ASH Scotland briefing. The STA meeting will run from 10.00 to 13.00 followed by lunch and the ASH Scotland briefing in the afternoon from 14.00 to 16.00.
