Taking action on smoking and health
ASH Scotland is offering a newly-developed training course called “Smoking and Mental Health: Understanding the IMPACT”. The aim is to equip workers who support people with lived experience of mental health problems with the knowledge, skills and confidence to initiate a conversation on smoking, and to discuss options for supporting people who are ready to quit.
The training is free, is primarily designed for staff working within third-sector organisations, and comprises a one-hour online session and a two-hour face-to-face session. Please note, priority will be given to staff from services within the Lothians area until March 2018. From April 2018 spaces will be opened up to practitioners across the country.
For more information on this, please see the IMPACT Project's website.
