Free, two-hour training around the links between smoking and mental health. To help address the inequalities linked to higher smoking rates among people experiencing poor mental health, ASH Scotland is offering a newly-developed training course called "Smoking and Mental Health: Understanding the IMPACT". This will 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. It is based on a Guidance pack, developed by ASH Scotland, which offers practical solutions to this complex issue.
