The guidance has been developed from a wide range of Scottish, UK and international sources of expertise. These sources include work led by the Department of Health for the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) Joint Medical Committee and work conducted by the European Network for Traumatic Stress (TENTS) programme. In 2009 the authors of the NATO guidance and the TENTS guidelines combined the common principles and recommendations of both sets of guidance in a single document, Guidance for Responding to the Psychosocial and Mental Health Needs of People Affected by Disasters or Major Incidents. This document has formed the basis of the Scottish Government guidance.
