Cancer and Mental Wellbeing Education Series: From Prevention to Survivorship
Individuals with mental health and substance use (MH/SU) challenges are at greater risk of delayed screenings, advanced disease progression and early mortality due to tobacco-related cancer disparities caused by barriers at each point in the cancer care continuum.

Providers and public health professionals can explore and engage a multi-faceted approach to reduce these disparities by examining collaborative evidence-based ways to increase access, enhance quality and improve outcomes.

Join the National Behavioral Health Network for Tobacco and Cancer Control at the National Council for Mental Wellbeing on September 8, 2-4 p.m. ET for the first session in our three-part Cancer Education Training Series. We will explore cancer-related disparities among individuals with MH/SU challenges and the implications for providers and public health professionals.

This event will feature the following subject matter experts:

Samara Tahmid, Project Manager, Practice Improvement and Consulting, National Council for Mental Wellbeing

Heather Von St. James, 15-year Mesothelioma Cancer Survivor, Advocate and Activist

Bethany Ross, Neuroendocrine Cancer Survivor and Advocate

By joining this event, you will:

Increase your knowledge of tobacco and cancer-related disparities faced by individuals with mental health and substance use challenges.

Develop an understanding of the evidence-based approaches providers and public health professionals can implement with individuals impacted by cancer and mental health challenges.

Learn ways to improve data collection approaches from peers.
