This course is for anyone who is interested in finding out a little more about smoking and tobacco. It will give you a brief look at tobacco, nicotine cravings, available support and nicotine replacement therapy

(although an understanding tobacco section is included in all our other courses, this generic stand-alone module is specifically for those who find that the other course topics aren't currently relevant to their learning needs)

This module will introduce you to the topic of second-hand smoke (SHS) and will help you to think about how to talk to parents about it. It focuses on building knowledge and in so doing, building your confidence when speaking to parents.


Parents wish to protect their children, and many parents who smoke already take some action. However we know that parents often do not understand enough about the way that tobacco smoke behaves and the harm it causes and so welcome information and support.

In order for to receive recognition for completing the eLearning, each participant would need to complete a quiz for each module and include details in their HBHM submission report.

The aim of the IMPACT project is to raise awareness of the links between smoking and poor mental health and to encourage mental health practitioners to discuss these links.
