Tobacco and Mental Wellbeing: Exploring Promising and Emerging Practices
Commercial tobacco use disproportionately affects the health of individuals with mental health and/or substance use (MH/SU) challenges due to higher exposure to tobacco, predatorial marketing by the tobacco industry and health care barriers. While evidence-based practices – such as tobacco-free policies, screening, cessation counseling and medication-assisted treatment – are well-documented and implemented, several emerging and promising practices can also support the needs of individuals with MH/SU challenges.

Join the National Behavioral Health Network for Tobacco and Cancer Control at the National Council for Mental Wellbeing on September 7, 2:30-3:30 p.m. ET for a discussion on these emerging and promising practices to address tobacco-related disparities for individuals with MH/SU challenges.

By joining this webinar, you will:

Learn about emerging practices in commercial tobacco control tailored for individuals with MH/SU challenges.

Identify ways to apply emerging practices in mental health and substance use treatment organizations.

Discuss ways that state and local organizations have successfully implemented promising tobacco control strategies to support individuals with MH/SU challenges.
