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. If you are staying for the afternoon, lunch is provided followed by the ASH Scotland briefing in the afternoon from 14.00 to 16.00.
To register for events contact Administration Assistant Clair Kirkwood:
0131 220 9467 : firstname.lastname@example.org
The elected planning body of the STA meets quarterly and the next meeting is 13.30, 28th February at ASH Scotland in Edinburgh. Members wishing to attend as observers may do so on request. Submissions for the agenda are requested by 14th February 2017.
